    I think it is sonnet number 130 (not sure about the number),  but it is the one that starts off "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun."  I take it as a humorous poem about someone praising the beauty of his ugly girlfriend.

      The sonnet number is correct, I like this poem but I was going ask you that is Shakespeare saying pleasant things about the women, but you answered my question. Thanks.

    I prefer Shakespeare"s plays to his sonnets. I am especially fond of "Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day. . . " from Macbeth, my favorite tragedy. If I were to pick a sonnet, it would be #18: "How I compare thee to a summer's day..."
