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 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 wand'rest 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.

by William Shakespeare

Omg. You are sooo good. I've never head of another Grengs before. I'm Janelle grengs. =D I wonder if we are related...? Great poems though. I loved it. =]
The comment I just wrote was supposed to read: 'personal angst and dread'
The first ten or so lines of this work begin to express a sense of personal angst and fread that many can relate to. I have to say I was disappointed to see the rest of it take a downhill turn into something like bedtime scary stories that children tell each other at a slumber party. I just think that you have got some real intensity in you and I want to see more of it!
i did enjoy it a lot! On the whole I love horror style! best wishes Aram
