Shall I Compare Thee

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more stormy and less temperate. Rough winds do shake our fragile bonds of May, And summer's temper hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot your sweat does shine, And often is your beauty dimmed; And every handsome man you do decline, by chance, they leave chest hair untrimmed. Part 2 Variation Shall I compare thee to a winter’s day? Thou art as stormy and as cold And do leave me longing for May And winter’s temper too long showed Sometime too cold yours eyes shine GREY
