Of Love and Summer

Arguably Shakespeare’s most famous poem, Sonnet 18 speaks of love, youth and the passing of time.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and 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 is 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 ow’st;
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.

    1. Thank you! I’m thinking of doing it like this for the ones I know by heart. Can’t afford a prompter for the ones I don’t! It’s a very different approach though.

      1. Oh you definitely should. Nothing wrong with a little bit of Shakespeare in one’s life! Go you…a book, video, what else do you have rolled up your sleeve?!

      2. I’m writing a libretto for an opera, I have a sold out stand-up comedy tour…oh, and I am just about to break the world record of competitive jam-eating. Need I go on further about my talents?😜😝

      3. Lol. I’ll pass on the opera, I’m indifferent to jam, but I am interested in the comedy tour! Speaking of comedy though, did you see my newest post? I wrote about some of my favorite music comedy skits. I think you will approve 🙂
