Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;Sometimes the sun is too hotSometimes you can’t even see it at allAnything in nature eventually fades awayEither naturally over time or by chance PersonificationMetaphorConsonance
Sonnet 18 (Lines 9-12)But thy eternal summer shall not fadeNor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st; But your beauty will never fade Or will you ever lose possession of itYou will not be taken away by death You will live forever through my verse
Sonnet 18 (Lines 13-14)So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this, and this gives life to theeAs long as humans can breathe and see This (sonnet) will live forever, celebrating your beauty
