ROSES, their sharp spines being gone,
Not royal in their smells alone,
   But in their hue;

    Oh......only the pretty birds?

  • Stevie Taite (12/11/2012 11:34:00 AM)

    Why should the birds not be there? Or am I getting it all wrong? Some one please explain?

    I have post a Chinese translation about this poem, but there ia a guy named: justjust gives information like this as follow:

    'this was the first time i saw this poem. i have a feeling that it was not written by shakespeare. why so? meter is one thing of consideration. shakespeare did not seem to use this kind of meter (often) . secondly, some words may not be so shakespearean. for instance, the word 'Ver'. apparently this is not an english word. it is latin, meaning spring. i don't recall seeing this word in his sonnets. also the rhyme. i would think that normally shakespeare would choose a different type of rhyme. '

    wonderful, unequalled by the metaphors and imagery
