|Let me confess that we two must be twain, |

|Although our undivided loves are one: |

|So shall those blots that do with me remain |

|Without thy help by me be borne alone. |

|In our two loves there is but one respect, |

|Though in our lives a separable spite, |

|Which though it alter not love's sole effect, |

|Yet doth it steal sweet hours from love's |

|delight. |

|I may not evermore acknowledge thee, |

|Lest my bewailed guilt should do thee shame, |

|Nor thou with public kindness honour me, |

|Unless thou take that honour from thy name: |

| But do not so; I love thee in such sort |

| As, thou being mine, mine is thy good report. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 37


|As a decrepit father takes delight |

|To see his active child do deeds of youth, |

|So I, made lame by fortune's dearest spite, |

|Take all my comfort of thy worth and truth. |

|For whether beauty, birth, or wealth, or wit, |

|Or any of these all, or all, or more, |

|Entitled in thy parts do crowned sit, |

|I make my love engrafted to this store: |

|So then I am not lame, poor, nor despised, |

|Whilst that this shadow doth such substance give |

|That I in thy abundance am sufficed |

|And by a part of all thy glory live. |

| Look, what is best, that best I wish in thee: |

| This wish I have; then ten times happy me! |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 38


|How can my Muse want subject to invent, |

|While thou dost breathe, that pour'st into my |

|verse |

|Thine own sweet argument, too excellent |

|For every vulgar paper to rehearse? |

|O, give thyself the thanks, if aught in me |

|Worthy perusal stand against thy sight; |

|For who's so dumb that cannot write to thee, |

|When thou thyself dost give invention light? |

|Be thou the tenth Muse, ten times more in worth |

|Than those old nine which rhymers invocate; |

|And he that calls on thee, let him bring forth |

|Eternal numbers to outlive long date. |

| If my slight Muse do please these curious days,|

| |

| The pain be mine, but thine shall be the |

|praise. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 39


|O, how thy worth with manners may I sing, |

|When thou art all the better part of me? |

|What can mine own praise to mine own self bring? |

|And what is 't but mine own when I praise thee? |

|Even for this let us divided live, |

|And our dear love lose name of single one, |

|That by this separation I may give |

|That due to thee which thou deservest alone. |

|O absence, what a torment wouldst thou prove, |

|Were it not thy sour leisure gave sweet leave |

|To entertain the time with thoughts of love, |

|Which time and thoughts so sweetly doth deceive, |

| And that thou teachest how to make one twain, |

| By praising him here who doth hence remain! |

|XL. |

|Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all; |

|What hast thou then more than thou hadst before? |

|No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call; |

|All mine was thine before thou hadst this more. |

|Then if for my love thou my love receivest, |

|I cannot blame thee for my love thou usest; |

|But yet be blamed, if thou thyself deceivest |

|By wilful taste of what thyself refusest. |

|I do forgive thy robbery, gentle thief, |

|Although thou steal thee all my poverty; |

|And yet, love knows, it is a greater grief |

|To bear love's wrong than hate's known injury. |

| Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows, |

| Kill me with spites; yet we must not be foes. |

Sonnet 41

|XLI. |

|Those petty wrongs that liberty commits, |

|When I am sometime absent from thy heart, |

|Thy beauty and thy years full well befits, |

|For still temptation follows where thou art. |

|Gentle thou art and therefore to be won, |

|Beauteous thou art, therefore to be assailed; |

|And when a woman woos, what woman's son |

|Will sourly leave her till she have prevailed? |

|Ay me! but yet thou mightest my seat forbear, |

|And chide try beauty and thy straying youth, |

|Who lead thee in their riot even there |

|Where thou art forced to break a twofold truth, |

| Hers by thy beauty tempting her to thee, |

| Thine, by thy beauty being false to me. |

|Sonnets of William Shakespeare |

|Sonnet 42 |

|XLII. |

|That thou hast her, it is not all my grief, |

|And yet it may be said I loved her dearly; |

|That she hath thee, is of my wailing chief, |

|A loss in love that touches me more nearly. |

|Loving offenders, thus I will excuse ye: |

|Thou dost love her, because thou knowst I love her; |

|And for my sake even so doth she abuse me, |

|Suffering my friend for my sake to approve her. |

|If I lose thee, my loss is my love's gain, |

|And losing her, my friend hath found that loss; |

|Both find each other, and I lose both twain, |

|And both for my sake lay on me this cross: |

| But here's the joy; my friend and I are one; |

| Sweet flattery! then she loves but me alone. |

|Sonnet 43 |


|When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see, |

|For all the day they view things unrespected; |

|But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee, |

|And darkly bright are bright in dark directed. |

|Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright, |

|How would thy shadow's form form happy show |

|To the clear day with thy much clearer light, |

|When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so! |

|How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made |

|By looking on thee in the living day, |

|When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade |

|Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay! |

| All days are nights to see till I see thee, |

| And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me. |

|XLIV. |

|If the dull substance of my flesh were thought, |

|Injurious distance should not stop my way; |

|For then despite of space I would be brought, |

|From limits far remote where thou dost stay. |

|No matter then although my foot did stand |

|Upon the farthest earth removed from thee; |

|For nimble thought can jump both sea and land |

|As soon as think the place where he would be. |

|But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought, |

|To leap large lengths of miles when thou art |

|gone, |

|But that so much of earth and water wrought |

|I must attend time's leisure with my moan, |

| Receiving nought by elements so slow |

| But heavy tears, badges of either's woe. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 45

|XLV. |

|The other two, slight air and purging fire, |

|Are both with thee, wherever I abide; |

|The first my thought, the other my desire, |

|These present-absent with swift motion slide. |

|For when these quicker elements are gone |

|In tender embassy of love to thee, |

|My life, being made of four, with two alone |

|Sinks down to death, oppress'd with melancholy; |

|Until life's composition be recured |

|By those swift messengers return'd from thee, |

|Who even but now come back again, assured |

|Of thy fair health, recounting it to me: |

| This told, I joy; but then no longer glad, |

| I send them back again and straight grow sad. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 46

|XLVI. |

|Mine eye and heart are at a mortal war |

|How to divide the conquest of thy sight; |

|Mine eye my heart thy picture's sight would bar, |

|My heart mine eye the freedom of that right. |

|My heart doth plead that thou in him dost lie-- |

|A closet never pierced with crystal eyes-- |

|But the defendant doth that plea deny |

|And says in him thy fair appearance lies. |

|To 'cide this title is impanneled |

|A quest of thoughts, all tenants to the heart, |

|And by their verdict is determined |

|The clear eye's moiety and the dear heart's part:|

| |

| As thus; mine eye's due is thy outward part, |

| And my heart's right thy inward love of heart. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 47


|Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took, |

|And each doth good turns now unto the other: |

|When that mine eye is famish'd for a look, |

|Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,|

| |

|With my love's picture then my eye doth feast |

|And to the painted banquet bids my heart; |

|Another time mine eye is my heart's guest |

|And in his thoughts of love doth share a part: |

|So, either by thy picture or my love, |

|Thyself away art resent still with me; |

|For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move,|

| |

|And I am still with them and they with thee; |

| Or, if they sleep, thy picture in my sight |

| Awakes my heart to heart's and eye's delight. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 48


|How careful was I, when I took my way, |

|Each trifle under truest bars to thrust, |

|That to my use it might unused stay |

|From hands of falsehood, in sure wards of trust! |

|But thou, to whom my jewels trifles are, |

|Most worthy of comfort, now my greatest grief, |

|Thou, best of dearest and mine only care, |

|Art left the prey of every vulgar thief. |

|Thee have I not lock'd up in any chest, |

|Save where thou art not, though I feel thou art, |

|Within the gentle closure of my breast, |

|From whence at pleasure thou mayst come and part;|

| |

| And even thence thou wilt be stol'n, I fear, |

| For truth proves thievish for a prize so dear. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 49

|XLIX. |

|Against that time, if ever that time come, |

|When I shall see thee frown on my defects, |

|When as thy love hath cast his utmost sum, |

|Call'd to that audit by advised respects; |

|Against that time when thou shalt strangely pass |

|And scarcely greet me with that sun thine eye, |

|When love, converted from the thing it was, |

|Shall reasons find of settled gravity,-- |

|Against that time do I ensconce me here |

|Within the knowledge of mine own desert, |

|And this my hand against myself uprear, |

|To guard the lawful reasons on thy part: |

| To leave poor me thou hast the strength of |

|laws, |

| Since why to love I can allege no cause. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 50

|L. |

|How heavy do I journey on the way, |

|When what I seek, my weary travel's end, |

|Doth teach that ease and that repose to say |

|'Thus far the miles are measured from thy |

|friend!' |

|The beast that bears me, tired with my woe, |

|Plods dully on, to bear that weight in me, |

|As if by some instinct the wretch did know |

|His rider loved not speed, being made from thee: |

|The bloody spur cannot provoke him on |

|That sometimes anger thrusts into his hide; |

|Which heavily he answers with a groan, |

|More sharp to me than spurring to his side; |

| For that same groan doth put this in my mind; |

| My grief lies onward and my joy behind. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 51

|LI. |

|Thus can my love excuse the slow offence |

|Of my dull bearer when from thee I speed: |

|From where thou art why should I haste me thence?|

| |

|Till I return, of posting is no need. |

|O, what excuse will my poor beast then find, |

|When swift extremity can seem but slow? |

|Then should I spur, though mounted on the wind; |

|In winged speed no motion shall I know: |

|Then can no horse with my desire keep pace; |

|Therefore desire of perfect'st love being made, |

|Shall neigh--no dull flesh--in his fiery race; |

|But love, for love, thus shall excuse my jade; |

| Since from thee going he went wilful-slow, |

| Towards thee I'll run, and give him leave to |

|go. |

Sonnet 52

|LII. |

|So am I as the rich, whose blessed key |

|Can bring him to his sweet up-locked treasure, |

|The which he will not every hour survey, |

|For blunting the fine point of seldom pleasure. |

|Therefore are feasts so solemn and so rare, |

|Since, seldom coming, in the long year set, |

|Like stones of worth they thinly placed are, |

|Or captain jewels in the carcanet. |

|So is the time that keeps you as my chest, |

|Or as the wardrobe which the robe doth hide, |

|To make some special instant special blest, |

|By new unfolding his imprison'd pride. |

| Blessed are you, whose worthiness gives scope, |

| Being had, to triumph, being lack'd, to hope. |

|Sonnets of William Shakespeare |

|Sonnet 53 |

|LIII. |

|What is your substance, whereof are you made, |

|That millions of strange shadows on you tend? |

|Since every one hath, every one, one shade, |

|And you, but one, can every shadow lend. |

|Describe Adonis, and the counterfeit |

|Is poorly imitated after you; |

|On Helen's cheek all art of beauty set, |
