Shakespeare's Sonnets

paraphrase the first quatrain

1 Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?

2 Thou art more lovely and more temperature

3 Rough winds do shake the Darling buds of may

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

Shall I compare your beauty to the beauty of a nice summer day.

You are more lovely in beauty and mood.

Rough winds still shake the budding flowers coming in May

Summer is only brief before beauty of a flower or beauty fades.
