Benzetebilir miyim bir yaz gününe seni?
Sen daha sevimlisin, daha sakinsin ondan.
Sert rüzgarlar Mayısın narin çiçeklerini.
Hırpalar ;Yaz ise pek çabuk geçer...Durmadan!
Bazan, kızgın olarak,parlar gözü semanın...
Bir karartıyla sık sık söner altın bakışı ;
Her güzel,güzelliğini kaybeder: Tabiatın-
Sebep olur da bazan bu kararsız akışı!

Fakat senin ebedi yazın hiç sönmeyecek,
Dönmeyecek sendeki güzellik bir yalana.
Ölüm sana yaklaştı diye, öğünmeyecek:

Sen eşitken ebedi mısralarla zamana
Yaşadıkça insanlar, görebildikçe gözler,
Seni yaşatmak için yaşayacak bu sözler

W. Shakespeare

Yes, it is the translation of it:

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Quoting Deli_kizin:

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

I have been thinking for a while that a campaign should be established to restore the use of the traditional forms of second person singular in English rather than always using second person plural........

Anybody else think this would be a good idea???

Yes let's make English more difficult than it already is for foreigners

Not at all - that would simplify it......

A complete collection of Shakespeare's sonnets is available on the net, if anyone should look for them.

They may appear hard to understand at first, but are very rewarding once you grow a taste for them.

You will notice each Shakespeare sonnet presents a problem, a puzzle, a thought, a question right down to its last stanza (stanza = two lines).

The last stanza is where the poet presents a coded solution, reply, explanation or the reason that sonnet was written....as the case may be.

You may wish to try a few sonnets, and see if you can understand poet's problems...and decipher the coded replies or explanations.

Would it?

I like it thought, but i guess it makes the sonnets etc more special, more respectful .. because we don't use it anymore, so it sounds more powerful. Right?

And if i think of doing what you said in Dutch (using 'gij' instead of 'je'), soudns really weird to me?

Yeah, we are doing that with English Class now.. the literature department of this year is working on the different periods of literature and now we are working on Shakespeare and the Canterbury Tales. Very beautiful both i must say.
