Shall i compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely & more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.


a little more sweetness...

    ooo .... sonnet 116. you are such a romantic! i love it! And don't forget:

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments.
    Love is not love, which alters
    when it alteration finds.
    Or bend with the remover to remove.
    Oh no, it is an ever fixed marks that looks
    on tempests,
    and is never shaken.

    I know this by heart :) Thanks for bringing back memories from poetry club in high school.
