Shall I Compare Thee to a Rainy Day?


Based on Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? (Sonnet 18), by William Shakespeare:-

Shall I compare thee to a rainy day
Thou art more refreshing and yet expected
Rough winds do turn umbrellas inside out
And British summers are filled with damp days
Sometime too deep the muddy puddles shine
And often the murky complexion dimmed
And every person has had that moment
By chance, when feet sank deep into murk and mud
As deep as I sank into thy unfading eternal storm
And never lose possession of your deepest soul
Nor shall summer come to dry up our love
Eternal water gives life to plants which grow

So long as eyes can see the veil of water
So long as it gives life, this shall give life to thee
