Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare – Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare 


Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds

Or bends with the remover to remove.                                4


O, no, it is an ever-fixèd mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wand’ring bark,

Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.    8


Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle’s compass come;

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.                              12


If this be error, and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
