Shall I compare thee…

Place: Riverview Auditorium  

Poison: Diet Coke  

Favourite things: Riverview Music Team, rehearsing!  

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?  

Thou are more lovely and more temperate.  

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,  

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.  

Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,  

And often is his gold complexion dimmed;  

And every fair from fair sometime declines,  

By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed.  

But thy eternal summer shall not fade  

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;  

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.  

William Shakespeare  

Although today was nothing like a summer’s day, it was a fine one indeed. Started with a coffee and a stroll, then a brief drop in on some breakfast lovin, then bridesmaids shopping, finished with a catnap in the arvo! Who can complain about that.  

Whilst shopping with Miss Elly and Tam, I found Morrison’s, new summer catalogue which Shakespeare’s finest sonnet was spotted throughout.  

Here’s a toast to a hot chocolate, with lots of marshmallow’s and syrypy type of winter’s day. I hope someone writes a poem like this about me one day, ‘When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st’  

Am I like a summers day? Warm, embracing, inspiring and fresh!
