Personal response to Sonnet 73

This poem is comparing seasons and our life. He is especially focusing on towards the end of our lives. His description of the autumn of our life is very dreary. He portrays like this:

When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang

Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,

Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.

This description makes me fear about my future, when my life get into that season. I think Shakespeare was try to convey that we should love our youth through this poem.

    It’d been better if you chose one of the poems that we studied earlier this unit. Since we haven’t been talking about this poem much, there is not much to say about it and the post is a bit sober.
