Sonnet 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 expression dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimmed
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderst in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou growest,
So long as men can breathe and eyes can see
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee
just analysed it for my intro to lit assignment and cant help sharing its beauty and mindblowingness
