SONNET 18 ~ WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE ~ BRIANSODES
*******************************************
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.
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines
And often is his gold complexion dimmed
And every fair from fair sometimes 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


His words of love and history
From whence did they appear?
What muses danced before his eyes
And whispered in his ear
An ordinary man and yet
A master we hold dear


The world has music for those who listen.


TO BE OR NOT TO BE ? BRIANSODES
*******************************
To work or shirk
To Love or not to Love
To Live or not to Live
To share or not to share
To care or not to care
To HELP ~ or pass by on the other side
To be colour blind or racist
To be a CARNIVORE or a VEGITARIAN
To walk or burn precious fossil fuels
To BREED or keep the population manageble

These are the TEN QUESTIONS we must answer every day !
