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?
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,

The picture is a great sonnet but I don’t know, my dear friend
This sonnet is a poem by Shakespeare Lado. Thanks for your comments.
Thank you for your kind explanation, dear Pamela
His poetry is full of great imagery. Thanks this particular poem is a good one!
Thanks Doc, glad you like it as well.
I agree with Grace , It was fatal of that time
Thanks Witty Feeds, that is so true…
Thank you so much Pamela. Strange that we were not introduced to Sonnets during our days while we were studying.
That is so true, happened here too, but I did english by correspondence and was introduced to Shakespeares sonnets, I thought they were really great.
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. 😛
Precisely why I prefer to share something different about Shakespeare
I like Shakespeare’s poems and I have read some of his plays which are tragic. This is a beautiful poem.
Thanks so much Introvert, I like something more cheerful than tragic plays, so this sonnet suits
