A Shakespearean Sonnet Poem
(a) My Mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
(b) Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
(a) If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
(b) If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
(c) I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
(d) But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
(c) And in some perfumes is there more delight
(d) There in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
(e) I love to hear her speak; yet well I know
(f) That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
(e) I grant I never saw a goddess go;
(f) My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground
(g) Any yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
(g) As any she belied with false compare.
NOTE: Please make sure your setting are on "Poetry and "Sonnet" to match with the challenge requirements.
