I can't believe it's Friday again already! Time again for blog hop mania! Head on over to Crazy for Books to join in the fun and sign up to the McLinky! Happy hop-hop-hopping!
In other news, I'm about 300 pages into Strange and Norrell. Very slow progress, I know. So in celebration of National Poetry Month, I give you a lovely sonnet for a lovely day:
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:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
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.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
