Sonnet 22

           ,            ,         ,        ,       ,
      My glass | shall not | persuade | me I | am old,
           ,         ,           ,              ,    ,
      So long | as youth | and thou | are of / one date;
            ,     .   T     T    T       ,       ,
      But when | in thee time's fur|rows I | behold,
             ,        ,          ,            ,    ,
      Then look | I death | my days | should ex|piate.
           ,           ,       ,          ,       ,
      For all | that beau|ty that | doth^cov|er thee,
          ,          ,      ,        ,        ,
      Is but | the seem|ly rai|ment of | my heart,
             ,          ,            ,         ,         ,
      Which^in | thy breast | doth live,| as thine | in me:
            ,        ,        ,              ,   ,
      How* can | I then | be el|der than / thou art?
          ,           ,      ,   2      ,        ,
      O there|fore, love, | be of thy|self so | wary
         ,    ,     2     ,          T    T    T
      As I | not for my|self, but | for thee will;
       ,     2        ,           ,          ,        ,
      Bearing thy | heart, which^|I will | keep so | chary
          ,        ,           ,          ,       ,
      As ten|der nurse | her babe | from far|ing ill.
           ,         ,         ,           ,          ,
      Presume | not on | thy heart | when mine | is slain,
             ,          ,      ,         T    T  .  T
      Thou gavst | me thine | not to | give back again.
