    Shakespeare 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 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 lose possession of that fair thou owst;

    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.

    VocabularyThou art you are temperate mild darling lovely bud Knospe lease time complexion face untrimmed the decorations of beauty taken away thou owst you own to brag to show off

    Tasks1. Write the stresses over the lines. (U=unstressed, / =stressed)2. Write the rhyme scheme next to the lines. (use capital letters , ie. ABCD

    etc)3. Divide the poem into stanzas.4. What effect does the change in the rhyme scheme at the end have?
