Dat lady

Inspired by shall I compare thee to a summers day (Sonnet 18) Shall I meet thee on a summer's day? Thou art more lovely than my usual mate. Rough winds do shake your darling buds of May, But summer's lease hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot the eye of Helen shines, And often the shade of my deception dims; But Helen’s keenly watching sight declines, By chance, or God’s allowance of my whims. But thy infernal summer shall soon fade And lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; And death shall brag thou serv'est as his maid, Thine face shall host eternal lines that grow’st So long as man can breathe or eyes can see, So shall fair maidens congregate to me.
