Poetry

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments; love is not love

Which alters when it aleration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle’s compass come;

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out to the edge of doom.

   If this be error and upon me proved,

  I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

-William Shakespeare
