William Shakespeare 

Sonnet 105: Let not my love be called idolatry by William Shakespeare

Let not my love be called idolatry,
Nor my belovèd as an idol show,
Since all alike my songs and praises be
To one, of one, still such, and ever so.
Kind is my love today, tomorrow kind,
Still constant in a wondrous excellence;
Therefore my verse to constancy confined,
One thing expressing, leaves out difference.
“Fair, kind, and true” is all my argument,
“Fair, kind, and true” varying to other words;
And in this change is my invention spent,
Three themes in one, which wondrous scope affords.
Fair, kind, and true, have often lived alone.
Which three till now never kept seat in one.

One thought on “William Shakespeare

    I love William Shakespeare. I like to write sonnets on occasion. They have a pretty easy formula to follow if you get the rhyme and meter down. But alas! Sonnets these days are few and far between.
