sonnet 1301
Sonnet 130

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;

Coral is far more red than her lips' red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;

If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head;

I have seen roses damasked, red and white,

But no such roses see I in her cheeks;

And in some pérfumes is there more delight

Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her speak, yet well I know

That music hath a far more pleasing sound.

I grant I never saw a goddess go;

My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.

  And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare

  As any she belied with false compare.

sonnet 130 modern translation
Sonnet 130 – Modern Translation

My mistress’s eyes are nothing like the sun.

Coral is much redder than the red of her lips.

Compared to the whiteness of snow, her breasts are dull grayish-brown.

Poets describe their mistresses' hair as gold wires, but my mistress has black wires growing on her head.

I have seen roses that were a mixture of red and white,

but I don’t see those colors in her cheeks.

And some perfumes smell more delightful

than my mistress’s reeking breath.

I love to hear her speak;

yet I know perfectly well that music has a far more pleasant sound.

I admit I never saw a goddess walk;

when my mistress walks, she treads on the ground.

And yet, by heaven, I think my beloved is as special

as any woman whom poets have lied about with false comparisons.
