Valentine's Day

For you, dear readers, on this day of loving, I present my favorite of Shakespeare's sonnets. We should always tell those we love how we feel, but since we don't always take the time to say those special words, let this day serve as a reminder. Happy Valentine's Day.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration 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 even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.


  1. Ah! This one is my favorite, too! <3

  2. What a lovely thought for today.

  3. "...even to the edge of doom." Love!

    Hope you guys had a great Valentine's Day.

  4. Glad you liked it - would you believe there was an old edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets in our B&B room this weekend?
