If I compared thee to a single word.

If I compared thee to a winter's moon,

Would you wax and wane and set to soon.

If I compared thee to a summer's day,

Would you shine so bright come out to play.

If I compared thee to an autumn shower,

Would you run like a river or drowned like a flower.

If I compared thee to a starlit night,

Would you twinkle in view or out of sight.

If I compared thee to a truth so long,

Would you create a full stop and prove me wrong.

If I compared thee to a fanciful tapestry,

Would you create a picture for me to see.

If I compared thee to a breeze that's subtle,

Would you twist and turn like leaves that rustle.

If I compared thee to a lasting smile,

Would you remain on my lips for a while.

If I compared thee to stormy weather,

Would you rain on my parade maybe forever.

If I compared thee to a piece of gold,

Would you remain in my hand for me to hold

If I compared thee to a moment of wonder,

Would you remain toward me any fonder.

If I compared thee to a diamond ring,

Would you glitter and sparkle like expensive bling.

If I compared thee to an act of pleasure,

Would you wrap yourself around me like some exotic treasure.

If I compared thee to a page of lines,

Would you reveal unto me a romantic rhyme.

If I compared thee to a single word,

Would you say to me I'm being absurd.
