. He discusses the meaning of unconditional love, knowing that it is the only thing that cannot be permanently destroyed. He believes nothing can tear or hurt the beauty of a relationship, as long as the graceful connection lives on. The poem was originally created for the speaker’s lover, who may have begun to grow old at the time. He alternates between the rough windy days of summer and his lover, and this woman, who he describes the exact opposite. As Shakespeare relives the days they spent together in the sun, he uses a language full of clear diction, intense imagery and powerful tone. The words of sonnet 18 tell a story about the strength love has, and how it can defeat any force of nature, including time. In the first quatrain, Shakespeare comes in with plenty of diction, introducing his feelings for this person. The line “thou more lovely and more temperate” talks about her gentle and calm personality. It first compares her to a summer’s day, then takes it back by saying she is not as rough and unpredictable as the May winds. In addition, it phrases “summer’s lease hath all too short a date” showing that he wishes time wouldn’t pass by so quickly when they’re together. It proves that summer’s not the only time of year when loves occurs. No matter where the two of them are, their memories will long stay by their side. This language in this part of the poem rings as a symbol of how love is seen through a special someone’s eye. In the second quatrain, Shakespeare leads us on by creating intense images of the battle between the sun and nature itself. The statement “sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines” resembles how her smile reflects his world every single day. Even the

The poem ends by leaving us with a mixture of emotions. so will their love. the line “nor shall death brag thou wander’st in the shade” remind us that time will pass and people will grow old. The sentence “but thy eternal summer shall not fade” tells the reader that every bit of sadness also includes a bit of happiness. Also. for a year. or for a lifetime. it happens to everyone and there is not actual way of avoiding it. Not .most romantic and lovely beings in life will come to loose its appearance. In a world where time is not on the move. In the third quatrain. Ultimately. others happen due to luck. people will not be controlled of what they really desire. the phrase “by chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d” shows that although some things in life are planned. It gives something to believe in. It means that even though the wonderful times have long passed. He explains that their summer together can be taken away any time. for any unknown reason. But yet. It will hang on to the memories of those who once experienced its true meaning. Not the lightening speeds of time. the power of Shakespeare’s significance tone drives us into the direction of one belief: hope. with both positive and negative charges. promoting the idea that love is unconditional. Everyone will eventually reach a day when they are no longer who they used to be. for now or maybe for a lifetime. Finally. The happy moments he experienced from time to time will simply become a part of history.
