Thou art more lovely and more temperate:


You are prettier and more pleasant

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,


In summer high winds shake buds from trees of May

And summer's lease hath all too short a date:


And summer is really far too short: the sun sometimes is way too hot

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,


the sun sometimes is way too hot

And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;


And often the suns face is covered with clouds

And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance or nature's changing course
untrimm'd;
Making what should be a pleasant day unpleasant by natural course nature is
unpredictable and will end,

But thy eternal summer shall not fade


But your life shall never fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;


Nor will your beauty ever be lost

Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,


And death shall never reach you and take you into darkness

When in eternal lines to time thou growest:


Because with these lines that I write

As long as there are men alive to read my poems

So long lives this and this gives life to thee.


Forever you will have life in my words.
