Sonnet 15

           ,       ,      ,  2    ,            ,
      When I | consid|er ev|ery thing | that grows
        ,     2     ,         ,       ,        ,
      Holds in per|fection | but a | little | moment.
                   ,    ,         ,          ,           ,
      That this^/huge stage | presen|teth nought | but shows
            ,            x      ,        ,   2       ,
      Whereon | the stars in | secret | influence | comment.
           ,        ,           ,          ,          ,
      When I | perceive | that men | as plants | increase,
         ,             ,    ,       2        T    T   T
      Cheered and | checked e/ven by the | self-same sky,
        ,                ,        ,         ,           ,
      Vaunt in | their youth|ful sap,| at height | decrease,
            ,            ,       ,             ,    ,
      And wear | their brave | state out | of me|mory.
        ,             ,         ,       ,          ,
      Then the | conceit | of this | incon|stant stay,
        ,          T    T   .   T         ,         ,
      Sets you | most rich in youth | before | my sight,
              ,         ,       ,        ,       ,
      Where waste|ful Time | deba|teth with | decay
            ,           ,         ,         ,         ,
      To change | your day | of youth | to sul|lied night,
           ,        ,           ,          ,        ,
      And all | in war | with Time | for love | of you
          ,           ,         ,       ,          ,
      As he | takes^from | you, I | engraft | you new.
