Romancing the Sleeve

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 owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
 
…Shakespeare: Sonnet XVIII

Even more love for the wonderful person who first knit in the round using two circular needles.

    My 8th grade English teacher required each student to memorize one of Shakespeare’s sonnets and she insisted that once it was memorized we’d never forget it. Twenty years later and I still knew all the lines to this sonnet. Amazing.
