Teen Tuesday – Freshman Shakespearean Proteges
You may have seen my post last Friday on one of my student’s Shakespearean Valentine card assignment. They were supposed to use a little Shakespearean language and make a comparison to go in a Valentine’s Day card. Here are some of the highlights! 🙂 By the way jocund = cheerful, fair = beautiful, fain = gladly, and nigh = near
Thou art as fair as a diamond at a jewelry store that’s priceless to my heart, and if shined on, it will light up my soul.
Thou art as fair as a sunset fain setting slowly above the calm ocean.
Thou art as fair as the dark woods, mysterious and bright. Thou make me jocund just to be in your presence. Just to be nigh thee is enough.
Thy eyes are as fair as the stars that shine above the highest mountain.
Thy eyes are as jocund with mirth as a goddess with a thousand worshipers.
I desire thy affection. Methinks thy hair is as fair as flowing satin.
Methinks thou art as fair as a freshly bloomed rose after a long winter’s wait.
Thy eyes are as fair as the morning sky reaching across the world.
Thou art as fair as Aphrodite herself. Thy eyes sparkle like stars on a clear night.
Thy smile is a fair flower on a bright day that fain blows away the clouds in the sky.
Thou art as fair as a red rose in the middle of white lilies.
Thy love is like a glorious garden in bloom that was planted by angels.
