Those Eyes

Sonnet 17 - William Shakespeare
I just could not resist snagging this gorgeous QP.  I wanted to focus on my daughter's beautiful eyes and I think this layout is just perfect for it.

I love Shakespeare plays and sonnets and number 17 is one of my favourites.  Here it is in all it's glory.

Who will believe my verse in time to come,
If it were fill'd with your most high deserts?
Though yet, heaven knows, it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life and shows not half your parts.
If I could write the beauty of your eyes
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say 'This poet lies:
Such heavenly touches ne'er touch'd earthly faces.'
So should my papers yellow'd with their age
Be scorn'd like old men of less truth than tongue,
And your true rights be term'd a poet's rage
And stretched metre of an antique song:
But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice; in it and in my rhyme.
