Glorious June is here
This glorious summer’s day I just can’t seem to settle down. The green leaves and the blue sky and the brilliant flowers and the gentle breeze…it all distracts me. No great profound thoughts are coming out of me today, so instead, I give you a sonnet from Shakespeare that speaks of immortality. (It also speaks to why I write.)
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 dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
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:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Have a glorious weekend!
