Sonnet 73 by William Shakespeare - Shakespeare compares fall to the aging process, and reflects upon growing old.
That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see'st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west,
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed whereon it must expire,
Consum'd with that which it was nourish'd by.
This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
Gorgeous page Karen! Love the face in the tree, the superb border clustering, the framing and fab poem. Congratulations on GSO!
 
Karen, congrats on the GSO! Love the gorgeous tree and face and framing and the fabulous poem on your November page!
 
Fantabulous blending ! I love the sonnet too, never read it ,so extra special. Without sounding "high faluting," the best part of all the Ode pages for me , are the new poem's and Quotes and songs, not to mention the Poets them selves , that I get to " meet " for the first time. But back to your page, Love the whole composition of it, and it is definitely a well deserved GSO you got for it. Thanks for playing along this month.
