Famous Poems In Bed No. 2: Sonnet CXVI in Bed

Based upon "Sonnet CXVI" by William Shakespeare

by Lyle Carlyle

LET me not to the marriage of true minds in bed
Admit impediments. Love is not love in bed
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove, in bed:
O no! in bed it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown in bed, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come, in bed:
Love in bed alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom, in bed.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ in bed, nor no man ever loved, in bed.
