Sonnet Sunday (V-day edition)


So...I figured I would add a bit of Valentine's Day into this weeks Sonnet Sunday and actually post a sonnet.

My husband and I share the same passion for books, he loves the smell, the feel, and the bookstore just as much as I do. If I went out and got us books with the grocery money he would happily find a way to make the soup we had last for us both till we got paid again. We have been married for 3 years next month and I love and admire him more and more every single day we are together. So this sonnet is by Shakespeare but I dedicate this Sunday's post to my love:

Against my love shall be as I am now,
With Time's injurious hand crush'd and o'erworn;
When hours have drain'd his blood and fill'd his brow
With lines and wrinkles; when his youthful morn
Hath travelled on to age's steepy night;
And all those beauties whereof now he's king
Are vanishing, or vanished out of sight,
Stealing away the treasure of his spring;
For such a time do I now fortify
Against confounding age's cruel knife,
That he shall never cut from memory
My sweet love's beauty, though my lover's life:
His beauty shall in these black lines be seen,
And they shall live, and he in them still green.

By: William Shakespeare

Disclaimer: This is not William Shakespeare, this is my husband. (yes, that is a light saber)
