Sonnet 130 from Shakepeare’s sonnets

This is sonnet number 130 from Shakepeare’s sonnets.
It’s a love sonnet, but it isn’t a traditionally idealised vision of the object of love. He doesn’t describe his loved one in romantically poetical terms, but with realism. He doesn’t speak of perfection, he speaks of reality. It’s a very down to earth description, but romantic nonetheless.
