A Summer's Day

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 dimm’d,
And every fair from fair sometime decllines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimm’d:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ou’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st 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.

by Shakespeare

    It may not seem the wordings are completely clear, but if, if you do thou love, then thou understanding shall appear, My dear Rebeccca. Their is no meaning for hatred in words, every words count for something special like love. Right? Lets do the respect and understand Shakespeare's way of saying.
