This is an amazing idea of how love and friendship should be!! It is almost refreshing. In this sonnet Shakespeare does mention rough times, however, even though sometimes there are rough times in life, love and friendship will conquer all.
Barter Explication This poem is about admiring all that life has to give you. Teasdale uses formal language in this poem. I feel that there is a clear speaker and it is Teasdale sending us a message in her poem telling us to enjoy life for the loveliness. Teasdale used imagery and personification in the first stanza to give nature human like qualities, “Soaring fire that sways and sings.” The first two stanzas have a calm and peaceful mood but in the third stanza the mood shifts to persuasive or assertive where the speaker tells us to “spend all you have for loveliness”. In the first stanza the speaker gives examples of “beautiful and splendid things” and goes on to refer to them in the last line of the first stanza “Children’s faces looking up holding wonder in a cup”.

In Shakespeare’s ‘Sonnet 116’ it does not change tense, but it also describes how love should will go on forever, ‘love alters not with his brief hours and weeks’ showing love will not change quickly, ‘but bears it out even to the edge of doom’ which means love will go on until the world is no longer – judgement day. Both poets use enjambment as nearer the end they become more excited and the poem moves on faster, as there is less pauses, ‘though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle’s compass come;‘ and ‘because the birthday of my life is come’ Sonnet 116 is quite a sinister poem as it uses words like ‘sickle’, ‘doom’, ‘tempests’ which all show a gloomy side to love, whereas ‘A birthday’ is very happy throughout the poem as all the similes are about nature, happiness and purity,
The love written about in this poem is concerning the inner beauty of the lady, this is also known as pure love. George Gordon (Lord Byron) in the poem “She Walks in Beauty” shows the love and affection he has for the lady but not for her looks, it’s for her inner beauty that shines through, showing his devotion to her beauty and love: She walks in beauty, like the night So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of the days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!

He used the metaphor ‘Dear rose, thy joy’s undimmed’ as a symbol to link nature with time. So whenever he uses the word ‘rose’ we know metaphorical he is talking about the women in the poem. The world ‘Undimmed’ shows us he loves her same amount throughout time no matter what and love is never undimmed nor is relationship. It also implies beauty is never undimmed along with his happiness. The word undimmed connotes pure, and honest just like a first love.

Sonnet 18 shows that love can result in you worshipping a woman's beauty. This sonnet compares the persona's loved one favourably to summer, and declares: 'thy eternal summer shall not fade'. The metaphorical reference to the lady’s beauty as an ‘eternal summer’ suggests that her beauty shall live forever, unlike summer, which is a short season and is quickly followed by the colder periods of autumn and winter. The connotations of summer are warmth, with flowers blooming and wonderful countryside; therefore the person is suggesting that there is something gloriously natural and vibrant about his loved one’s beauty. Idealisation of beauty by a love struck lover is also seen in Romeo and Juliet.
For people who learn English poems, Wordsworth is a familiar family name to them. The Wordsworth brother and sister, William Wordsworth and Dorothy Wordsworth are both famous of their works and also their good relationship. Among different types of poems, I prefer pastoral poems than other types, and Wordsworth’s “Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey” is my favorite one. This poem is a pastoral poem; however, it’s not a typical pastoral poem, it’s a meaningful poem. It’s seems like the poem just talk about the beautiful scenes, in fact, behind the beautiful scenes, what William wants to express is the transition of his mood while the second time he visits the same place.
