    translation

    I am translating the Sonet 18 written by Shakespeare, but I just can't get the meaning of the expression "fair from fair". Do you have idea of what it means? Please let me know.
    Thank You

    Re: translation

    And every fair from fair sometimes declines

    What is beautiful (fair) will not stay beautiful (fair) forever, but decline (grow less beautiful) in the natural order of things.

    I hope this is helpful.
