For You: Sonnet XXX by William Shakespeare


WHEN to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thought I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death's dateless night,
And weep afresh love's long since cancelled woe,
And moan th' expense of many a vanished sight.
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoanèd moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end.

  1. I love Shakespeare :)

    I also thought you (and your readers) might be interested to know that my just-launched urban fantasy novel, The Millennial Sword, will be free to download from 10/2 to 10/5. It's on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009JW9K4M/. I hope you'll take a look--thanks very much!
