Sonnet 130: My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sunBy William ShakespeareFirst Read Directions: Label the rhyme scheme/pattern and iambic pentameter for each line. Then, list the topic or theme for each quatrain (setof 4 lines) and the rhyming couplet (last 2 lines of the sonnet). 1My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;Coral is far redder than her lips' red;If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.5I have seen roses damasked, red and white,But no such roses see I in her cheeks;And in some perfumes is there more delightThan in the breath that from my mistress reeks.9I love to hear her speak, yet well I knowThat music hath a far more pleasing sound;I grant I never saw a goddess go;My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.13And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rareAs any, she belied with false compare.Second Read Directions: Now annotate for words that create tone by annotating/highlighting
