Shakespeare’s Sonnet 62

Sin of self-love possesseth all mine eye
And all my soul and all my every part;
And for this sin there is no remedy,
It is so grounded inward in my heart.
Methinks no face so gracious is as mine,
No shape so true, no truth of such account;
And for myself mine own worth do define,
As I all other in all worths surmount.
But when my glass shows me myself indeed,
Beated and chopp’d with tann’d antiquity,
Mine own self-love quite contrary I read;
Self so self-loving were iniquity.
‘Tis thee, myself, that for myself I praise,
Painting my age with beauty of thy days.

Lyrics to a Song: Skeleton Key (In Progress)

These lyrics were written by a blossoming artist who is just getting started. She hasn’t written much but these are the lyrics to the first song that she is doing right now. What are your thoughts and what instrument would you have with them?

 

Skeleton Key
By: Rosalia

“Everywhere I go,

and everything I see,

you’re always there with me.

You’re my skeleton key,

so why can’t I be yours?”

 

TRUE OR FALSE?

Cleansing

With the rain comes cleansing,

Cleansing brings a fresh start.

A fresh start brings peace.

 

Peace of Mind.

Peace to the Heart.

Tranquility to the Soul.

 

Rejoice! Rejoice!

Believe And You’ll Find Magic

What kind of magic do you expect to find?

 

 

A Night of Fire

A Night of Fire

The Night rolls over the land, quiet and soothing;
Letting the Shadows move.

The Flames from lamps glow, gently;
Pulling the Shadows near to hold.

She pushes them away, with a loving glow;
But brings them close to her for shelter.

For the Night Shadows embrace,
The warm Glow of Flame, and she loves him;
Dearly and with her whole being.

For without him, she has no lover’s touch;
Until his death comes with the rising sun.

Sad little Flame, she will await him;
As she sleeps and dreams.

Thoughts On Brave New World

I’m reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley for my AP Literature and Composition class, and at this point in time, it’s very upsetting. Training children to hate books?! The horror! I also find myself comparing it to the caste system, since they have Alphas and such, of the Dwarves in Dragon Age, and I know that’s silly but that’s how I see it. Especially when there was a mention of dwarves. I am finding it interesting but I’m not sure if I’m going to like the book if this continues the way it is.

Now I must know, does it get better or worse? That’s all I need to know, because I need a little push to continue the book and actually know what I’m reading with some hope that it won’t end too horribly.
