8  Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?  Thou art more lovely and more temperate.  Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,  And summer's lease hath all too short a date.  Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,  And often is his gold complexion dimmed;  And every fair from fair sometime declines,  By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;  But thy eternal summer shall not fade,  Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,  Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,  When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st.  So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,  So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
