This is one of my favorite poems of Shakespeare:
SONNET 116Let 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.
This poem is really beautiful because of its message the writer wants us to know! The theme defines the nature of perfect love and the value of a lasting union between two like minds the marriage of "true minds". The part i mostly like is where Shakespear tells us that love endures until the end of time "to the edge of doom". The writer also states that love, unlike the frail human body, is immune to the effects of time! At the end of the poem Shakespeare says that the faithfulness of perfect love must be a reality or else all human love is tragic, pointless and a illusion.
