|I see descriptions of the fairest wights, |

|And beauty making beautiful old rhyme |

|In praise of ladies dead and lovely knights, |

|Then, in the blazon of sweet beauty's best, |

|Of hand, of foot, of lip, of eye, of brow, |

|I see their antique pen would have express'd |

|Even such a beauty as you master now. |

|So all their praises are but prophecies |

|Of this our time, all you prefiguring; |

|And, for they look'd but with divining eyes, |

|They had not skill enough your worth to sing: |

| For we, which now behold these present days, |

| Had eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise.|

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 107

|CVII. |

|Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul |

|Of the wide world dreaming on things to come, |

|Can yet the lease of my true love control, |

|Supposed as forfeit to a confined doom. |

|The mortal moon hath her eclipse endured |

|And the sad augurs mock their own presage; |

|Incertainties now crown themselves assured |

|And peace proclaims olives of endless age. |

|Now with the drops of this most balmy time |

|My love looks fresh, and death to me subscribes, |

|Since, spite of him, I'll live in this poor |

|rhyme, |

|While he insults o'er dull and speechless tribes:|

| |

| And thou in this shalt find thy monument, |

| When tyrants' crests and tombs of brass are |

|spent. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 108


|What's in the brain that ink may character |

|Which hath not figured to thee my true spirit? |

|What's new to speak, what new to register, |

|That may express my love or thy dear merit? |

|Nothing, sweet boy; but yet, like prayers divine,|

| |

|I must, each day say o'er the very same, |

|Counting no old thing old, thou mine, I thine, |

|Even as when first I hallow'd thy fair name. |

|So that eternal love in love's fresh case |

|Weighs not the dust and injury of age, |

|Nor gives to necessary wrinkles place, |

|But makes antiquity for aye his page, |

| Finding the first conceit of love there bred |

| Where time and outward form would show it dead.|

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 109

|CIX. |

|O, never say that I was false of heart, |

|Though absence seem'd my flame to qualify. |

|As easy might I from myself depart |

|As from my soul, which in thy breast doth lie: |

|That is my home of love: if I have ranged, |

|Like him that travels I return again, |

|Just to the time, not with the time exchanged, |

|So that myself bring water for my stain. |

|Never believe, though in my nature reign'd |

|All frailties that besiege all kinds of blood, |

|That it could so preposterously be stain'd, |

|To leave for nothing all thy sum of good; |

| For nothing this wide universe I call, |

| Save thou, my rose; in it thou art my all. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 110

|CX. |

|Alas, 'tis true I have gone here and there |

|And made myself a motley to the view, |

|Gored mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most |

|dear, |

|Made old offences of affections new; |

|Most true it is that I have look'd on truth |

|Askance and strangely: but, by all above, |

|These blenches gave my heart another youth, |

|And worse essays proved thee my best of love. |

|Now all is done, have what shall have no end: |

|Mine appetite I never more will grind |

|On newer proof, to try an older friend, |

|A god in love, to whom I am confined. |

| Then give me welcome, next my heaven the best, |

| Even to thy pure and most most loving breast. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 111

|CXI. |

|O, for my sake do you with Fortune chide, |

|The guilty goddess of my harmful deeds, |

|That did not better for my life provide |

|Than public means which public manners breeds. |

|Thence comes it that my name receives a brand, |

|And almost thence my nature is subdued |

|To what it works in, like the dyer's hand: |

|Pity me then and wish I were renew'd; |

|Whilst, like a willing patient, I will drink |

|Potions of eisel 'gainst my strong infection |

|No bitterness that I will bitter think, |

|Nor double penance, to correct correction. |

| Pity me then, dear friend, and I assure ye |

| Even that your pity is enough to cure me. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 112

|CXII. |

|Your love and pity doth the impression fill |

|Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow; |

|For what care I who calls me well or ill, |

|So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow? |

|You are my all the world, and I must strive |

|To know my shames and praises from your tongue: |

|None else to me, nor I to none alive, |

|That my steel'd sense or changes right or wrong. |

|In so profound abysm I throw all care |

|Of others' voices, that my adder's sense |

|To critic and to flatterer stopped are. |

|Mark how with my neglect I do dispense: |

| You are so strongly in my purpose bred |

| That all the world besides methinks are dead. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 113


|Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind; |

|And that which governs me to go about |

|Doth part his function and is partly blind, |

|Seems seeing, but effectually is out; |

|For it no form delivers to the heart |

|Of bird of flower, or shape, which it doth latch:|

| |

|Of his quick objects hath the mind no part, |

|Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch: |

|For if it see the rudest or gentlest sight, |

|The most sweet favour or deformed'st creature, |

|The mountain or the sea, the day or night, |

|The crow or dove, it shapes them to your feature:|

| |

| Incapable of more, replete with you, |

| My most true mind thus makes mine eye untrue. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 114

|CXIV. |

|Or whether doth my mind, being crown'd with you, |

|Drink up the monarch's plague, this flattery? |

|Or whether shall I say, mine eye saith true, |

|And that your love taught it this alchemy, |

|To make of monsters and things indigest |

|Such cherubins as your sweet self resemble, |

|Creating every bad a perfect best, |

|As fast as objects to his beams assemble? |

|O,'tis the first; 'tis flattery in my seeing, |

|And my great mind most kingly drinks it up: |

|Mine eye well knows what with his gust is |

|'greeing, |

|And to his palate doth prepare the cup: |

| If it be poison'd, 'tis the lesser sin |

| That mine eye loves it and doth first begin. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 115

|CXV. |

|Those lines that I before have writ do lie, |

|Even those that said I could not love you dearer:|

| |

|Yet then my judgment knew no reason why |

|My most full flame should afterwards burn |

|clearer. |

|But reckoning time, whose million'd accidents |

|Creep in 'twixt vows and change decrees of kings,|

| |

|Tan sacred beauty, blunt the sharp'st intents, |

|Divert strong minds to the course of altering |

|things; |

|Alas, why, fearing of time's tyranny, |

|Might I not then say 'Now I love you best,' |

|When I was certain o'er incertainty, |

|Crowning the present, doubting of the rest? |

| Love is a babe; then might I not say so, |

| To give full growth to that which still doth |

|grow? |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 116

|CXVI. |

|Let me not to the marriage of true minds |

|Admit impediments. Love is not love |

|Which alters when it alteration finds, |

|Or bends with the remover to remove: |

|O no! it is an ever-fixed mark |

|That looks on tempests and is never shaken; |

|It is the star to every wandering bark, |

|Whose worth's unknown, although his height be |

|taken. |

|Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and |

|cheeks |

|Within his bending sickle's compass come: |

|Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, |

|But bears it out even to the edge of doom. |

| If this be error and upon me proved, |

| I never writ, nor no man ever loved. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 117


|Accuse me thus: that I have scanted all |

|Wherein I should your great deserts repay, |

|Forgot upon your dearest love to call, |

|Whereto all bonds do tie me day by day; |

|That I have frequent been with unknown minds |

|And given to time your own dear-purchased right |

|That I have hoisted sail to all the winds |

|Which should transport me farthest from your |

|sight. |

|Book both my wilfulness and errors down |

|And on just proof surmise accumulate; |

|Bring me within the level of your frown, |

|But shoot not at me in your waken'd hate; |

| Since my appeal says I did strive to prove |

| The constancy and virtue of your love. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 118


|Like as, to make our appetites more keen, |

|With eager compounds we our palate urge, |

|As, to prevent our maladies unseen, |

|We sicken to shun sickness when we purge, |

|Even so, being tuff of your ne'er-cloying |

|sweetness, |

|To bitter sauces did I frame my feeding |

|And, sick of welfare, found a kind of meetness |

|To be diseased ere that there was true needing. |

|Thus policy in love, to anticipate |

|The ills that were not, grew to faults assured |

|And brought to medicine a healthful state |

|Which, rank of goodness, would by ill be cured: |

| But thence I learn, and find the lesson true, |

| Drugs poison him that so fell sick of you. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 119

|CXIX. |

|What potions have I drunk of Siren tears, |

|Distill'd from limbecks foul as hell within, |

|Applying fears to hopes and hopes to fears, |

|Still losing when I saw myself to win! |

|What wretched errors hath my heart committed, |

|Whilst it hath thought itself so blessed never! |

|How have mine eyes out of their spheres been |

|fitted |

|In the distraction of this madding fever! |

|O benefit of ill! now I find true |

|That better is by evil still made better; |

|And ruin'd love, when it is built anew, |

|Grows fairer than at first, more strong, far |

|greater. |

| So I return rebuked to my content |

| And gain by ill thrice more than I have spent. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 120

|CXX. |

|That you were once unkind befriends me now, |

|And for that sorrow which I then did feel |

|Needs must I under my transgression bow, |

|Unless my nerves were brass or hammer'd steel. |

|For if you were by my unkindness shaken |

|As I by yours, you've pass'd a hell of time, |

|And I, a tyrant, have no leisure taken |

|To weigh how once I suffered in your crime. |

|O, that our night of woe might have remember'd |

|My deepest sense, how hard true sorrow hits, |

|And soon to you, as you to me, then tender'd |

|The humble slave which wounded bosoms fits! |

| But that your trespass now becomes a fee; |

| Mine ransoms yours, and yours must ransom me. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 121

|CXXI. |

|'Tis better to be vile than vile esteem'd, |

|When not to be receives reproach of being, |

|And the just pleasure lost which is so deem'd |

|Not by our feeling but by others' seeing: |

|For why should others false adulterate eyes |

|Give salutation to my sportive blood? |

|Or on my frailties why are frailer spies, |

|Which in their wills count bad what I think good?|

| |

|No, I am that I am, and they that level |

|At my abuses reckon up their own: |

|I may be straight, though they themselves be |

|bevel; |

|By their rank thoughts my deeds must not be |

|shown; |

| Unless this general evil they maintain, |

| All men are bad, and in their badness reign. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 122


|Thy gift, thy tables, are within my brain |

|Full character'd with lasting memory, |

|Which shall above that idle rank remain |

|Beyond all date, even to eternity; |

|Or at the least, so long as brain and heart |

|Have faculty by nature to subsist; |

|Till each to razed oblivion yield his part |

|Of thee, thy record never can be miss'd. |

|That poor retention could not so much hold, |

|Nor need I tallies thy dear love to score; |

|Therefore to give them from me was I bold, |

|To trust those tables that receive thee more: |

| To keep an adjunct to remember thee |

| Were to import forgetfulness in me. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 123


|No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change: |

|Thy pyramids built up with newer might |

|To me are nothing novel, nothing strange; |

|They are but dressings of a former sight. |

|Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire |

|What thou dost foist upon us that is old, |

|And rather make them born to our desire |

|Than think that we before have heard them told. |

|Thy registers and thee I both defy, |

|Not wondering at the present nor the past, |

|For thy records and what we see doth lie, |

|Made more or less by thy continual haste. |

| This I do vow and this shall ever be; |

| I will be true, despite thy scythe and thee. |

Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Sonnet 124


|If my dear love were but the child of state, |

|It might for Fortune's bastard be unfather'd' |

|As subject to Time's love or to Time's hate, |

|Weeds among weeds, or flowers with flowers |

|gather'd. |

|No, it was builded far from accident; |

|It suffers not in smiling pomp, nor falls |

|Under the blow of thralled discontent, |

|Whereto the inviting time our fashion calls: |
