Summer's Day

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 to short a date:

Sometimes 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 loose possession of that fair thou owest,

Nor shall death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest;

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

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
Sonnet 130

As always, 
Happy Gardening!
