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 to short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed ;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed ;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest ;
Nor shall death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest :
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
- William Shakespeare ( circa 1609 )
Tommorrow I will post my article on the Summer Solstice. Till then I will leave you with a Swedish proverb.
" A life without love, is like a year without summer. "
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
