Shakespeare’s grave

Shakespeare's grave

This is the grave of William Shakespeare in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Stratford on Avon. The gravestone reads:

Good Friend, for Jesus’ sake forbear
To dig the dust enclosed here:
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And curst be he that moves my bones.

There is an onomatopoetic to his name in the verse (“sake” in line 1 and “spares” in line 3), but nobody knows who wrote the epitaph.
