Sonnet 18

Do you still remember this poem???
It starts with Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
And ends with So long as men can breath, or eyes can see, 
                      So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
My god, we were forced by my english teacher to remember the whole poem to be tested in class in order to prepare for SPM...
And I will not forget if sum1 mentions it 1st line & the last, because it's the easiest to remember..

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 too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, 
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometimes declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
         So long as men can breath, or eyes can see,
         So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

William Shakespeare
