<ul><li> 1. Sonnet CXXX<br />Melissa Lopez<br />Jonathan Ledon<br /></li></ul> <p> 2. Quatrain 1<br />Interpretation<br />My mistress eyes are nothing like the sun; coral is far more red than her lips red; if snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; if hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. <br /> She has dark eyes, her lips are not red. Her breasts are not as white as snow and she has black hair.<br /> 3. Interpretation<br />Quatrain 2<br /> I have seen roses damaskd, red and white, but no such roses see I in her cheeks; and in some perfumes is there more delight than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.<br />She has pale cheeks, he is also saying that her breath doesnt smell as good as some perfumes.<br /> 4. Quatrain 3<br />Interpretation<br /> I love to hear her speak, yet well I know that music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; my mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.<br />He loves to hear her speak, but he knows that music has a more pleasing sound than her voice;Hes never seen a goddess walk, but he knows that she walks only on the ground.<br /> 5. Couplet 1<br />Interpretation<br /> And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare. As any she belied with false compare<br />Even though she is not special, his love for her is still unique <br /> 6.
