(You name the poet.)

2: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? / Thou art more lovely and more temperate"

4: "I love thee with the breath, / Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose, / I shall but love thee better after death"

6: "Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand / A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame / Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name / Mother of Exiles"

8: "Amor m'assale, ond'io mi discoloro, / et dico sospirando: Ivi è Laura ora"

10: "The world is too much with us; late and soon, / Getting and spending , we lay waste our powers; / Little we see in Nature that is ours; / We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!"

CABLE DRAMAS
