    SONNET 116 Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds‚ Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! 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‚ although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool‚ though rosy lips and cheeks  Within his bending sickle’s compass come:  Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks‚  But bears it

    The Spenserian Sonnet was named for Edmund Spenser 1552-1599‚ a 16th century English Poet.
