Writer Wednesday with Shakespeare

Writer Wednesday

Happy Writer Wednesday to you! On Writer Wednesday, I discuss another author and his or her book or poem. Today I’m celebrating one of Shakespeare’s sonnets.

Recently, I watched interesting documentaries on a few of Shakespeare’s plays.I always love learning more about the bard!

With that in mind, and in the spirit of summer, here is today’s Writer Wednesday’s selection…

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 complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
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.

Do you have any favorite summer poems?
Today’s Writer Wednesday is served with a tea selection of peach and raspberry, to round out the summer theme.

My best to you all,
