Sonnet 10

            ,        ,          ,       T     T   . T     o
      For shame | deny | that thou | bearst love to^a|ny,
       ,             ,         ,       ,     ,
      Who for | thyself | art so | unprov|ident.
        ,               ,          ,        ,         ,    o
      Grant if | thou wilt,| thou art | beloved | of ma|ny,
                   ,    ,      ,          T   T.  T
      But that / thou none | lovst is | most evident;
            ,         ,         ,           ,     2     ,
      For thou | art so | possessed | with murd|erous hate
               ,          ,            ,       ,            ,
      That 'gainst | thyself | thou stickst | not to | conspire.
       ,               ,    2     ,        ,    ,
      Seeking | that beau|teous roof | to ru|inate
        ,            ,            ,         ,         ,
      Which to | repair | should be | thy chief | desire.
          ,              ,           ,          ,          ,
      O change | thy thought, | that I | may change | my mind.
              ,         ,        ,           ,        ,
      Shall hate | be fair|er lodged | than gen|tle love?
          ,         ,        ,      ,              ,
      Be^as | thy pres|ence is, | gracious | and kind,
       ,   2      ,         T     T    T        ,
      Or to thy|self at | least kind hear|ted prove:
        ,            ,       ,           ,        ,
      Make thee | anoth|er self, | for love | of me,
             ,       ,           ,         ,          ,
      That beau|ty still | may live | in thine | or thee.
