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.


Shall I compare you to a summer's day?
You are more beautiful and more evenly-tempered
Rough winds shake the beloved buds of May
And summer is far too short:

At times the sun is too hot,
Or often goes behind the clouds;
And everything beautiful sometime will lose its beauty,
By misfortune or by nature's planned out course.

But your youth shall not fade,
Nor will you lose the beauty that you possess;
Nor will death claim you for his own,
Because in my eternal verse you will live forever

So long as there are people on this earth,
So long will this poem live on, making you immortal.

0 rponse | Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora English Subbed | Alien: Covenant Alien: Covenant (2017) Horror, Science Fiction, ThrillerDer fremde Planet, den die Crew des Kolonisationsraumschiffs Covenant erforscht, wirkt paradiesisch: Doch als die Terraforming-Spezialistin Daniels und ihre Kollegen, darunter der Android Walter, Christopher und Tennessee, durch die bergige, bewaldete Landschaft laufen, fällt ihnen vor allem die merkwürdige, beunruhigende Stille auf: Kein Vogel ist zu hören – und auch kein anderes Tier. Bald schon merken die Entdecker, dass sie auf einem Planeten gelandet sind, der lebensfeindlicher kaum sein könnte. Blitzschnelle, hochintelligente und Säure-spritzende Aliens überfallen die Covenant-Crew, töten ein Mitglied nach dem anderen. Und dem Rest der Gruppe wird klar: So weit weg von der Heimat sind sie komplett auf sich allein gestellt...
