Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

summer

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

trishy11 tin1

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

tin21 trishy41

And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,

tin3 trishy31

By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,

tin5 trishy21

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:

trishy51 tin4

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

–William Shakespeare

Happy birthday to two wonderful girls: Tricia and TinTin! ♥
