He desribed love between couples, friends, and families. He described the hardships of it, the sacrifices, company, and advantages/ disadvantages that he says love provides you with. He described his own love for his mistress', and his love for the world around him. But love is blind and lovers cannot see The pretty follies that themselves commit; For if they could, Cupid himself would blush To see me thus transformed to a boy. http://www.litera.co.uk/william_shakespeare_love_poems/ http://www.william-shakespeare.info/william-shakespeare-sonnets.htm O thou, my lovely boy, who in thy power
Dost hold Time's fickle glass, his sickle, hour;
Who hast by waning grown, and therein show'st
Thy lovers withering as thy sweet self grow'st;
If Nature, sovereign mistress over wrack,
As thou goest onwards, still will pluck thee back,
She keeps thee to this purpose, that her skill
May time disgrace and wretched minutes kill.
Yet fear her, O thou minion of her pleasure!
She may detain, but not still keep, her treasure:
Her audit, though delay'd, answer'd must be,
And her quietus is to render thee.
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare. http://www.william-shakespeare.info/william-shakespeare-sonnet-130.htm Love poems by shakespeare My Mistress Take, O Take A Lover's Complaint A Fairy Song A Madrigal Carpe Diem Fidele When Shakespeare wrote about beauty he mostly describe women and nature.
