Sonnet 11

          ,         ,             ,         ,            ,
      As fast | as thou | shalt* wane,| so fast | thou growst
          ,         ,            ,            ,         ,
      In one | of thine,| from that | which thou | departst,
       .    T    T     T             ,        ,         ,
      And that fresh blood | which young|ly thou | bestowst,
             ,             ,            ,           ,           ,
      Thou mayst | call* thine | when thou | from youth | convertst.
           ,          ,         ,       ,         ,
      Herein | lives^wis|dom, beau|ty, and | increase;
           ,          ,       ,          ,       ,
      Without | this fol|ly, age,| and cold | decay:
          ,          ,       ,         ,              ,
      If all | were min|ded so,| the times | should cease
       .    T    T     T            ,          ,        ,
      And threescore year | would make | the world | away.
            ,           ,        ,           ,          ,
      Let those | whom na|ture hath | not* made | for store,
        ,     ,                   ,     ,           x
      Harsh, fea/tureless,| and rude,| barren|ly perish:
             ,          ,        ,           ,          ,
      Look^whom | she best | endowed,| she gave | the more;
              ,    2     ,             ,           ,        x
      Which boun|teous gift | thou shouldst | in boun|ty cherish:
             ,       ,              ,          ,           ,
      She carved | thee for | her seal,| and meant | thereby,
        .       T      T     T         ,          ,     ,
      Thou* shouldst print more,| not let | that cop|y die.
