The Advent Of Summer

The summer is slowly making it's advent
This makes me these few lines to invent
Slowly the heat will be felt by all
Sweat has already from the summer received a call
Soon the load shedding will open its account
Much suffering awaiting with an excessive amount
Whatever happens the seasons have to change
This time it will not be easy to weigh it's range
Sometimes loneliness may appear in the sky of our minds
But the earthly bliss soon comes and all our loneliness it hinds
The circle of seasons move with summer, winter and spring
See all my friends God surely for all of you peace someday bring
One day surely i have no eyes to see
My request to all therefore do not forget me
Welcome is what the season of summer deserves
Remember everything one man named God from heaven observes....

As the sequence of sonnets dedicated to the youth draws to a close, the poet finally and crucially insists that his love is not of a mortal composition. It is not anything that is subject to time's destruction or to the fickle wheel of fortune.
In these three last sonnets he affirms his truth and constancy, with a love which will outlive the pyramids, and the whims of political change, and all external forms of favour and preferment. No matter that all his past experience has shown him that the object of love may not be worth the devotion he lavishes upon it. It is the love that counts. It is the ability to make the sacrifice of oneself. It is the strength of will that makes something out of nothing, and produces from a trivial and transitory romance something which lasts as long as time itself lasts - it is that which must be extolled and hymned, for if that cannot be saved from the general destruction, then nothing else is worth talking about. The rest is silence, as Hamlet said, and this love must be treated in such a way, as a silent mystery, for there is no other fitting end to it.
As KDJ points out, these three sonnets,123-5, can be read as three comments on the 'wonderful year' 1603-4, during which many poets wrote tributes on James I, but Shakespeare did not. (KDJ p.356, and Intro. p.26.) His love for the youth was irrelevant to pomp and circumstance, and far removed from politics. Although other possible targets of reference for 'the pyramids' may be cited, such as the obelisks discovered in Egypt and transported to Rome in the late 1580's and erected by Pope Sixtus V, they may be too remote. We are nowadays more willing to allow a later date of composition for some of the sonnets, for it is no longer so necessary to hide their controversial nature as being the product of an immature writer. The level of sophistication and the compression of meaning found in many of them is comparable with some of the best to be found in the plays. If the reference here and in 125 is to James' coronation, then this group of three sonnets would post-date March 1604, and the possible allusion to the gunpowder plotters in the couplet of 124 would indicate a date after 1605.www
