Some glory in their birth , some in their skill ,
Some in their wealth , some in their body’s force,
Some in their garments, though new-fangled ill,
Some in their hawks and hounds , some in their horse ;
And every humour hath his adjunct pleasure ,
Wherein it finds a joy above the rest .
But these particulars are not my measure ;
All these I better in one general best . = in you (me )
Thy love is better than high birth to me ,
Richer than wealth , prouder than garments ‘ cost,
Of more delight than hawks or horses be;
And, having thee , of all men’s pride I boast-
Wretched in this alone, that thou mayst take
All this awayand me most wretched make.
The 91st sonnet of Shakespeare crowned me Emperor of Ethiopia , the Neguse-Negest of the World. ( The reason why I rejected the title of a Negus as not equivalent to the honour I deserve in being human and appreciating the respect I showed to nature in sacrifycing all my worldly interest in preference to nature’s glorious revelation , God rewarded me with a divine majesty and made me an Emperor ).
To celebrate my coronation Median invited me and 10 memebers of the Imperial Cabinet to Holland . We will be staying in a hotel with a view to the sea and a beach just like the one I had at Cala Ratjada , Spain . My Care-Takers (Betreuerinnen )Frau Klawitter and Frau Schloßarek will be travelling along with us. The journey to the sea will start on 1st.of April 2019 .
