Page 20 Updated

 The image for page 20 has been updated to fix an oversight in colouring (the blue-ish tint indicates the "real" Shakespeare's world, the fantasy world of sonnets is in ink-black and white). If you would still like to see the original, it is exclusively available to my patrons here!

"But as the riper should by time decease": following the farming metaphor, a parent is "riper" than its child. Shakespeare is and will always be older and riper than his son, Hamnet, who was supposed to bear his memory but died at the tender age of eleven. He's also riper than his sonnets, and each sonnet is riper than its successor.

Page 23: Shakespeare, continuing to write the next line, envisions Father Time turning over the hourglass when his physical body dies.

Page 24: Shakespeare is being accompanied by Father Time on his inexorable march towards his own grave. Once his physical body is buried, his spirit will be transferred into the rose symbol inside his sonnets.

Here we see the Sonnet Shakespeares themselves inspiring the birth of their own mind-child sonnets, and all of them jumping in to the sands of time to avoid Father Time's scythe. The book containing the sonnets will prove to be an excellent vehicle to protect the sonnet pages from wear and tear as they spin towards their future in the bottom half of the hourglass.

This is the opening line of the first sonnet, in which Sonnet Shakespeare is born from the third eye / mind of his maker, the "Real" Shakespeare (the Bard, the author and poet who lived 400+ years ago).

The text of the first sonnet as seen from the back of the sonnet's looking glass, through which we can very faintly make out the view of Echo on the other side.
