Where can we still find shakespearean influences in modern day life? Films and Film adaptations Sonnet XVIII (18)
Addressed to the Young Man

Quatrain 1 (four-line stanza)

A Shall I compare thee to a summer's DAY? If I compared you to a summer day
B Thou art more lovely and more temperATE: I'd have to say you are more beautiful and serene:
A Rough winds do shake the darling buds of MAY, By comparison, summer is rough on budding life,
B And summer's lease hath all too short a DATE: And doesn't last long either:

Quatrain 2 (four-line stanza)

C Sometime too hot the eye of heaven SHINES, At times the summer sun [heaven's eye] is too hot,
D And often is his gold complexion DIMM'D; And at other times clouds dim its brilliance;
C And every fair from fair sometime deCLINES, Everything fair in nature becomes less fair from time to time,
D By chance or nature's changing course unTRIMM'D; No one can change [trim] nature or chance;

Quatrain 3 (four-line stanza)

E But thy eternal summer shall not FADE However, you yourself will not fade
F Nor lose possession of that fair thou OWEST; Nor lose ownership of your fairness;
E Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his SHADE, Not even death will claim you,
F When in eternal lines to time thou GROWEST: Because these lines I write will immortalize you:

Couplet (two rhyming lines)

G So long as men can breathe or eyes can SEE, Your beauty will last as long as men breathe and see,
G So long lives this and this gives life to THEE. As Long as this sonnet lives and gives you life.
