Sonnet 2

            ,      ,         ,         ,           ,
      When for|ty win|ters shall | besiege | thy brow,
           ,      ,    ,                  ,         ,
      And dig | deep tren/ches in | thy beau|ty's field,
            ,         ,    ,             ,         ,
      Thy^youth's | proud liv/ery | so gazed | on^now,
        ,    2     ,           ,         T     T     T
      Will be a | tottered | weed of | small worth held:
        ,            ,             ,          ,       ,
      Then *be|ing asked, | where^all | thy beau|ty lies,
             ,           ,       ,        ,       ,
      Where^all | the treas|ure of | thy lus|ty days;
          ,         ,           ,      T    Tx     T
      To say, | within | thine^own | deep sunken eyes,
                 ,   ,        ,             ,           ,
      Were an / all-eat|ing shame, | and thrift|less praise.
                  ,     ,          ,           ,        ,
      How much^/more praise | deserved | thy beau|ty's use,
           ,             ,               ,    ,          ,
      If thou | couldst^an|swer. This^/fair child | of mine
             ,         ,            ,        ,        ,
      Shall sum | my count, | and make | my old | excuse,
       ,             ,       ,       ,         ,
      Proving | his beau|ty by | succes|sion thine.
             ,             ,    ,           ,         ,
      This^were | to be / new made | when thou | art old,
           ,          ,       ,                 ,          ,
      And see | thy blood | warm when | thou feelst | it cold.
