Shakespeared

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed, 
The dear repose for limbs with travel tired, 
But then begins a journey in my head, 
To work my mind, when body's work's expired; 

For then my thoughts (from far where I abide) 
Intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee, 
And keep my drooping eyelids open wide, 
Looking on darkness which the blind do see; 

Save that my soul's imaginary sight 
Presents thy shadow to my sightless view, 
Which, like a jewel (hung in ghastly night), 
Makes black night beauteous, and her old face new.
 
Lo thus by day my limbs, by night my mind, 
For thee, and for myself, no quiet find.


Sonnet 27 by William Shakespeare

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I found myself in love with Shakespeare creations. It's not that I love poetry a lot, but I find something magnificent and attractive in many of his sonnets, and especially I like the style of writing. It's very unusual and sometimes has several meanings. I don't speak about how it's useful from the point of upgrading English skills with unusual constructions, new words and many other things. I've read some books in English before, but none of them is even close compared to Shakespeare. I freely speak with all the people from other countries, using lots of words and the hardest constructions, but after starting to read the Shakespeare I understood, how poor my skills are =) 

Aside it - I came to think, that many things we start to value after some time. I never thought that I'd like Shakespeare before. At school I thought that jeans and t-shirt are the best clothes in the world, strangely looked at father when he weared suits for work and counted medium and sweet wine as the nice alcohol. 

Now I drink only dry red wine, and can't convey the delight from wearing perfectly tailored three-piece suit and shirt with cufflinks. It's that feeling that no jeans with t-shirt can ever give you )

However I still can't eat olives, both dark and light... well, some things never change =)
