"It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine." ~Eeyore

My sweet Daisy is like none can say.
She is far more lovely than the sunset;
She is like the sun to light my day;
She is like a heat that makes me sweat.
My Daisy is the one for me.
My love is like a blossoming flower,
My love is like a growing tree,
That grows to give me a new power.
My sweet Daisy is like none can utter.
She is like a goddess who walks the earth;
She is like a butterfly who’s wings flutter;
Her eyes shine like the gold she is worth.
            And yet, as I’m concerned, I won’t flee
            From my love, for I am the great Gatsby.

This Shakespearean sonnet would have been written by Jay Gatsby for Daisy Buchanon.
