Again, we open up a Sonnet by Shakespeare. Surely, this isn’t a London morning. A mountain towers in front of us and Nature is at play with beautiful colours and green meadows. Notice how the Morning in question is a person here and the bard complains only for an hour he can enjoy this lovely sight. The poem is also listed as one of his “Fair Youth” sightings are present. There may be love or friendship going on and even if you think we are reading about a nice Morning, relationships can be present here too. The webpage “Shakespeare online” has given an reasonable explanation:
“In Sonnets 33-35 the poet makes it clear that he has been deeply hurt by his young friend, who many believe to be the historical Earl of Southampton, Shakespeare’s patron…”
Themes: nature, the morning, friends, love
Sonnet nr. 33
 Full many a glorious morning have I seen
 Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,
 Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
 Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy,
 Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
 With ugly rack on his celestial face,
 And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
 Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace.
 Even so my sun one early morn did shine
 With all-triumphant splendor on my brow,
 But, out alack, he was but one hour mine;
 The region cloud hath masked him from me now.
 Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
 Suns of the world may stain when heaven’s sun staineth.
