corner view "love"

This week´s theme comes from Jodi and is "love". I thought I´d go outside the box and post about a poem that I love, about love. I know it´s a stretch, but they say Shakespeare hung out with Cervantes for a time. So you see I can tie this to Spain... Enjoy.

Sonnet 29 (please clic)

Next week´s theme comes from the lovely Kay and is "My Dream". Trinsch do you mind going next? Thanks!

I'm SO sorry I couldn't understand it (not even written), it must be very beautiful if you posted it on this corner view :)
I love that actor, I loved his character of Mr.Darcy in Pride and Perjudice, I loved the movie and I love the book.When I saw the film I thought no one could have done it so well, it was written for him!

Thank you so much for being such a hard worker!
Besos grandotes :)

this made me giggle (as I was expecting a pic) and I immediately sent it to my amiga americana who totally digs him and has watched p&p about 20,000 times. and guess what, it made her want to watch the film again, hee hee.

did you know this site, by the way?

and well, the sonnets are just too wonderful so I won't even comment about 'em here as I wouldn't do them any justice.
