The North Shore of Oahu is again highlighted in this music video, various segments in Part II of a series on the rural areas of Oahu and is added to the beauty of Shakespeare’s beloved Love Sonnet, put to music and performed by Lady of Letters and Man of the Sea.

The video is here, with Shakespeare’s words, the lyrics of the song that reflects the majesty of the island areas where love blooms for many who live or visit the region.

Love Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
