SPRING: SONNET 98


Notes

I was away from you during the spring,
when splendid April in all its finery
Made everything feel so young
That even Saturn, the god of old age and gloominess, laughed and leaped along with it.
But neither the songs of birds nor the sweet smell
Of all the various coloured and perfumed flowers
Could make me feel like it was summer
Or inspire me to go flower picking.
I wasn’t amazed by how white the lily was,
Nor did I praise the deep red of the roses.
They were only sweet, only pictures of delight,
Drawn in imitation of you, the archetype of spring.
It seemed like it was still winter and, with you away,
I played with these flowers as if I were playing with your reflection.
-William Shakespeare
