    Should I Compare You To A Winters Morn?

    Should I compare you to a winters morn?
    You are more bitter and more discontent
    Than winds that shake even the devils horns.
    At least winter is cold but for a minute.
    Sometimes the fingers of winter are warm,
    And oft is the complexion painted ruse
    By brush or surgeon changing the cold storm
    Of crows feet that pass like the pain and bruise
    Left yellowing by time and the pursuit
    Eternal,the search for gold and jewels of youth,
    But your lust shall not pass as falling fruit
    Or summer days spent plyed in sweet vermouth
    --So long as you can breath, or hand can spend,
    --So long lives him, and you will bring an end.

    The day of his death was a dark cold day. - W.H. Auden

    Has the amimus mundi gone empty,
    or did I wake at 4:48? - J.P.V.

    Thanks Darren, I had fun with it. Been busy with work and unable to write or rewrite much but I was board at work so I worked a mirror sonnet 18.

    I knew Id read something like this before! You maintain the same tone as Sonnet 18, which lends the poem a nice touch.
