In Sonnet 18, possibly the most famous sonnet of them all, beginning ‘Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day’, a transition takes place as the narrator seems to fall in love with his addressee. No longer persuading the youth to live on in his descendants, instead the narrator wants to immortalise him in the ‘eternal lines’ of his poetry, somewhat immodestly (although, as it turns out, correctly!) proclaiming that ‘So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, / So long lives this, and this gives life to thee’. And from Sonnet 19 to Sonnet 126 we have a sequence of 108 poems that traces the twists and turns of their
William Shakespeare's sonnet, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" is describing to the reader a perfect young man. Some people believe that Sonnet 18 is one of the greatest love poems of all time, it is certainly one of the most famous of Shakespeare's Sonnets. Shakespeare wrote this sonnet, like the others, in iambic pentameter. The poem begins by slowly building the image of a young man, who eventually ends up being described as a human being who is above every other person he has laid eyes on. He deals with beauty and how it affects time.
Love is everlasting. This saying is echoed in both “Sonnet 75” by Edmund Spenser and “Sonnet 89” by Pablo Neruda which are almost identical in the idea they want to introduce. With their utilization of imagery, tone, figurative language, symbolism, and worldview both speakers convey that strong love can still exist past death. Through their diction both speakers display a depressing tone with an underlying optimistic tone despite that they are talking about death. Neruda illustrates a depressing tone through his words such as “die” and “asleep” all of which connote to death (Neruda 1,5).
On the other hand, love is not as easily recognized in Sonnet 130. It can be found, however, in line 13 of Sonnet 130 when it says, “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare.” This line means that he thinks that his love is extraordinary. While the subject matter appears very different, the message of both poems is the same. Through the poems, Shakespeare communicates that love is the same no matter the circumstances. In Sonnet 18, Shakespeare says that his lover will stay youthful and live forever in text; however, he knows realistically that his lover will age and die.
Luckily it ended because once I saw reality, I felt insane for wanting the spend the rest of my life with him. The love for a couple should be pure, trusting, selfless, and should take time to build into a strong foundation. I’ve personally seen many relationships fail in my life and most of the time it’s because they were lacking on one of those aspects listed above. That was one big factor that lacked in my own personal relationship, there was no trust. Having no trust causes a toxic and controlling relationship to occur.
“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility” (Wordsworth, Preface to the Lyrical Ballads.). Quoted above is an accurate depiction of how sentimental and felicitous the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge are, in response to the description in the question. Both poets allow themselves this space “in which to move his wings” through exploring lamentations on the past and reminiscing on the natural world and places that granted them gratification. Ultimately, the blank verse style, in which both are composed, acts as a blank canvas, allowing them this opportunity to delve into their senses. Moreover, their poems Tintern Abbey and Frost at Midnight are prime examples of the
Coz, if someone breaks the trust, hurts, and the scars that the heart's eye wears would be longer than ever.

Relationships are always progressing and never stable at any point in life. For example, relationships can be like a roller coaster, you never know which way relationships can end up.

There are many factors that can help with maintaining a successful relationship(s). Five characteristics that can primarily take a role in any relationship to be successful would be dialogue,acceptance,self disclosure,recognition, and rituals.
“Elizabethan mind was much influenced by the philosophy of Plato who assured it that there was a permanent and eternal Being which was the reality; on the other hand, the change, mutability, was only phenomenal, illusory and unreal. The daimonic Plato told the Elizabethan poets of the permanence, but they saw only mutability all around. Therefore, they questioned themselves: could mutable things be mad eternal? And they found the answer: only in art could beings be eternal…Shakespeare was also certainly and morbidly aware of the destructiveness of Time. In Sonnets 12, 15-19, 39, 60, 63-65, 100, 115-116, 123-124 and 126, and some other sonnets, he has expressed his utter concern over the corroding action of Time over the beauty of his friend, the Fair Youth.” (Sarkar, 78-79) Shakespeare’s Sonnets comprise a collection of 154 poems replete with themes like love, beauty, mortality, time and its destructiveness.
