Sonnet 130: My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like The Sun - Poem by William Shakespeare

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks,
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know,
That music hath a far more pleasing sound.
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

    What a delightful parody of Elizabethan romances this is! A favorite among Shakespeare's sonnets simply because it is so different, so humorous, so unselfconscious.

    And, by the way, just for the record, this is NOT my beloved, who is absolutely the opposite of the 'mistress' of this jest. (Report) Reply
