Poetry Wednesday--Shakespeare

This is one of my favorite of Shakespeare's Sonnets.  I love how the couplet at the end drives the point home.  I like to end my poems with this powerful ending, like a good gymnastic landing.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
