A modern adaptation of Shakespeare's famous sonnet via a mother to her infant "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"
“Thy Eternal Summer” is a modern adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets – Sonnet 18….”Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” In this modern adaptation of this beautiful poem we see the story of love through the eyes of a new mother for her baby infant boy. In a story somewhat reminiscent of Robert Munsch’s “I’ll Love you Forever” we see the boy grow through different stages of his life: as a vibrant infant; as a 10 year-old boy playing in the golden sunshine; as a 30 year-old Adonis pumping iron; and as a healthy, handsome 60 year-old man who is happy and joyous. This is a poem about love and eternal beauty - eternal because this Adonis is kept alive by the love of his mother and the very poem that is written about him.

Is he not just completely adorable? I think Shakespeare would agree that his "... eternal summer shall not fade...".
This is one of Shakespeare's most famous sonnets! In this adaptation of the poem, the mother compares the infant to summer arguing the child is more beautiful and temperate. The mother also states that the beautiful child will live on forever through the poem.
"Thy Eternal Summer" will focus on the relationship and love between mother and son in a modern style that has roots in Roman and Greek sculpture, as well as painting similar to the Madonna and child. Clothing will be timeless without being from a different era. It's the relationship between the two in select poses that are based n historical work."
Shakespeare uses a great deal of imagery in his writing and he states that the youth's beauty is golden like the summer and it will not fade.
