In my studies of Shakespeare in high school, I recall vividly, our English Lit instructor, a fine looking man in his 40’s, reading with great effect, the aforementioned sonnet. Perhaps it was meant for a female, but coming from this eloquent example of masculinity, it sounded as if it was specifically written for some young swain who the author might have know briefly over a summer in the country. The joy and awe that Shakespeare feels on gazing at such beauty is palpable.

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.
