Dear Archit,

Yesterday, I read a beautiful poem written by Shakespeare, ‘Not Marble, Nor the Gilded Monuments’. It is a sonnet which has fourteen lines. It highlights the smallness of our existence, our achievements and our false glory. After reading the poem, I realised that ‘art’ is immortal whereas, ‘time’ is very powerful. It leaves its marks on everything. Nobody can fight time. The poem has left a deep imprint on my mind. I have developed a great interest in poetry and will try to read some more poems.
