"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"

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 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.
–William Shakespeare


Campbell Meadow, near our house.  Have an awesome Wednesday!

I get it, one of you holds the leash and one the camera! Great pics of a sunny walk.

And summer's lease hath all too short a date;

But blog it and the summer's shared

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Missues, dogs, and pottery.

(My apologies to Will.) :-)

Cheri, that is awesome!

Gary, I love these photos and they lift my spirits. You have some awesome outdoorsiness around you. And Shakespeare - always good to read a sonnet.
