Shakespeare's Sonnet no 18 – Shall I compare thee to a Summer's. .

This is put here for Grace or anyone interested in Shakespeare

I like Shakespeare’s Sonnets better than I like the tragic stories of his plays. 

For some reason PG Waterhouse PreRaphilite paintings seem to suit this theme better 

I got that off the internet. Both the quote and the words.

Sonnet 18: Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

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,

What do you think?

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I haven’t really read much of Shakespeare’s work yet, perhaps I will try to find out more about it before teaching my kids. I don’t enjoy tragic plays as well, I prefer happy stories. 😛
