Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare

Students of Guardea had two last special English lessons: they had the chance of listening to a sonnet written by William Shakespeare. After having listened to it I gave each student a line to draw,

then I collected all the drawings, took pictures of them and created a video. 
In this way the students could understand the sonnet better and, imagining the meaning, they could also express their feelings.

Sonnet 18 

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
