shall i?

By Saturday, October 15, 2005No Comments

“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 too short a date

sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
and often is his gold complexion dimm’d

and every fair by fair sometimes declines
by chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;

by 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 though growest;

so long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
so long live this, and this gives life to thee”

-wm. shakespeare
