A Shakespearian Sonnet for Valentine’s Day




Sonnet # 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove.

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wand’ring bark,

Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle’s compass come;

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me prov’d,

I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

William Shakespeare

  1. AH! I love Shakespeare’s Sonnets. Thank you for this, it moves and reminds me of dearest Thomas. Who if here would have spent over an hour to find the perfect card. I have many, and not enough! But each card has been full to its brim with all the reasons he loved me. I am so fortunate to have been loved so very well. Being born so close to Valinetine’s Day there would be a birthday card as well, the same amount of time spent on it, and also full of his love. He was very eloquent with his writing. best wishes!
