Transcript of Shakespeare

Shakespeare
Sonnet No. 18
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.
loved person (thee) = beautiful
person (thou) > summer

summer: beautiful but too short
negative aspects
clouds & night

summer: comes to an END

should not lose beauty
beauty > death (can't take her beauty away)
refers to his ending:
so long people live & read 'this' (poem), she (life & beauty) lives on in memory
