                                             About Me:              I was born on April 23, 1564 to my parents, John and Mary Shakespeare.

  Information                                                       recently. As a boy, I attended Stratford Grammar School and then

  Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.                      glimpse of beauty in a heap of chaos.
  In me thou seest the twilight of such day                                 40 minutes ago       Like
  As after sunset fadeth in the west,

  That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,                                  25 minutes ago       Like

       Sonnet 130
       By William Shakespeare – Tuesday May 7 1590
                                                                         Thomas Russel This kind of sounds like that song cupid’s chokehold, how
  My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;                            it’s like my idea of beauty is different from your idea of it.
  Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
                                                                         25 minutes ago      Like
  If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
  If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
  I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,                              William Kempe There are a lot of similes and metaphors going on but
  But no such roses see I in her cheeks;                                  everything she is goes against the normal comparison of beauty like the rosy
                                                                          red cheeks and how you see no roses in her cheeks.
  And in some perfumes is there more delight
  Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.                         5 minutes ago      Like
  I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
  That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
  I grant I never saw a goddess go;
  My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
     And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
     As any she belied with false compare.

                                         Thomas Kyd I saw this photo and it reminded me of Sonnet 130 that you
                                         posted awhile back. It’s that different side of beauty you referenced.

                                         William Kempe It also reminds me of Sonnet 73. Obviously, there’s the
                                         sunset similarity and it shows life versus death with the light sky and barren
                                         tree.
