XXI. So is it not with me as with that Muse

XXII. My glass shall not persuade me I am old

As an unperfect actor on the stage .

XXIV. Mine eye hath play'd the painter, and hath stell’d

xxv. Let those who are in favour with their stars

XXVI. Lord of my love, to whom in vassalage

XXVII. Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed

How can I then return in happy plight

XXIX. When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes

When to the sessions of sweet silent thought .

XXXI. Thy bosom is endeared with all hearts

If thou survive my well.contented day

XXXIII. Full many a glorious morning have I seen

XXXIV. Why didst thou promise such a beauteous day

No more be grieved at that which thou hast done

Let me confess that we two must be twain

XXXVII. As a decrepit father takes delight

How can my Muse want subject to invent

XXXIX. 0, how thy worth with manners may I sing

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

Those pretty wrongs that liberty commits

That thou hast her, it is not all my grief

XLIII. When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see

If the dull substance of my flesh were thought

XLV. The other two, slight air and purging fire.

Mine eye and heart are at a mortal war

Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took

How careful was I, when I took my way

XLIX. Against that time, if ever that time come

How heavy do I journey on the way

Thus can my love excuse the slow offence

So am I as the rich, whose blessed key

What is your substance, whereof are you made

O, how much more doth beauty beauteous seem

LV. Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
