William Shakespeare - Sonnet 18

And now I've added another copy of this sonnet to cyberspace. Some of the "copies" I found are there as part of collections of favorite poems, some are examples of love poems available from "valentine" sites, some are part of college literature courses, and at least one is inside the complete works of Shakespeare. A couple are hyperlinked to explanations of the text. Most just sit there. There might be some logic in one "central" copy of the text that everyone could link to, but that raises questions for a different, perhaps future, column.

And your homework assignment, dear reader?
After reading the sonnet, click to the picture. Compare the two.
How is Shakespeare's love similar to the painted summer day?
