I typed the title wrong...write me*

Based on the sonnet 18?

"Shall I compare Thee" Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds to shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:

Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometimes declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

I have to compare something to something i love, lol. anyone help?

I was editor of the school literary magazine in high school and published a poem my brother wrote -- it was a tribute to ice hockey in the form of a Shakespearean sonnet.

I think I write quite well, and have 100+ poems under my belt. Unfortunately I can’t help you since I am Shakespeare-inept; it’s due to the old English, which I don’t understand.
