Very Happy Hi
I am a Chinese student.
Some of Shakespear's sonnet are very beautiful like his famous work "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day."
It is a real good and meaning sonnet. Wink

William Shakespeare 1564-1616
Sonnet XVIII

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 aya of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair some time declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So l˝ong as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
