Thank you very much for all your information. I'm finding it difficult to rephrase two sonnets by Shakespeare, especially number 130 "To my Mistress' eyes".

1) The sonnet is Shakespeare's tribute to his uncomely mistress, commonly referred to asthe dark lady because of her dun complexion.
2) Her eyes are nothing like the sun. Her breasts are dull brownsh gray (dun).
3) Coral is far more red than her lips and her cheeks are not like damasked red and white roses.
4) Her haiis like black wires. Music has afar more pleasing sound than her voice. When she walks, she treads on the ground. There is more delight in some perfumes than there is in her breath.
5) His mistress' beauty is described through a series of comparisons, introduced by "far". They deny the woman's beauty disappointing the reader's expactations.
