When Newton's Mother Met Shakespeare's Mother

Landscape with Mimosas by Pierre Renoir (1912)

{ This conversation took place when
Newton's mother Hanna met
Shakespeare's mother Mary.
The meeting took place in a fruit orchard}

Hanna said Mary so nice to meet thou here
I am disturbed where did my apple disappear

Mary said my dear I am much more into peers
That is why I named this son of mine as Shakespeare

Just then young Newton appeared eating an apple
He said mum with gravity of situation I seem to grapple

Shakespeare was staring at neighboring mango tree
He said much ado about nothing to be or not to be
