Shall I compare thee to the winter's day?

Shall I compare thee to the winter's day?

A Poem by Onyia-ota, Kingsley Chukwuebuka
"

Parody of Shakespeare's poem.

"



Shall I campare thee to the winter's day?
Thou art not lovely but more desperate
Ice block do melt our darling love away
And winter's lease do shake, thy ovary breathe
Some times too cold, warm not, heavenly ice again?
And often do her silvery complextion fade
And every morning a pale-cold-smoke would train
Not by chance, but a nature's clarion call, a shade
To give her eternal winter a pride
And thou lose every possession of thyself, a lot
And shall summer smile, thou wand'rest not in her, armed
When in eternal state thou embrac'est not
So short as she can love, as eye can see
So short, warm all my lovers ice for me.

I very much enjoy parody, so your spoof on "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" is well-received here. Even tho Shakespeare wrote so eloquently, I do get tired of the many flowery love poems that are styled similarly. That's why your honest message is a breath of fresh, if not also quite chilly air! This is a great concept, but I'm afraid it's written in a little bit too lofty of a style for me to interpret in detail. I'm no good at this type of poetry reading, so let it suffice to say that I simply appreciate your slightly sarcastic take on lofty love poems! *smile*

Sarcasm indeed. The diction of course is Shakespeare. I do appreciated your sincere review. Thank yo.. read more
I do so love Shakespeare, and love your parody. One feels the chill in her presence, the gray lines of life in the atmosphere. So well done.
