Sonnet 18: Iambic Pentameter Activity Part 1: We will read this SONNET together, as a class to interpret what it is saying. Shakespeare MODERN DAY REPHRASE Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Should I compare you to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: You are more lovely and calm Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, Rough winds shake the flowers during May And summer’s lease hath all too short a date; And summer is too short Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, Sometimes the sun shines too hot And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; And often it is cloudy And every fair from fair sometime declines, And beauty often fades By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd; By chance or by fate But thy eternal summer shall not fade, But your eternal youth will not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st; You are not going to lose the beauty that you own Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade, Death will not be able to take you away
