Shall I compare thee to a Summer day

Shall I compare thee to a Summer day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Harsh winds to shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath to short a date.
Oft' times too hot the eye of Heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed
And all that's fair from fair is at sometime declined
By fate, or nature's changing course untrimmed.
But thy eternal Summer shall never fade,
or lose possession of what fair thou hast,
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest' in his shade,
While in eternal lines to time thou growest;

For as long as men draw breath or eyes can see,
this lives on, and this gives life to thee.


- by William Shakespeare
