Sonnet 29

            ,        ,           ,               ,     ,
      When^in | disgrace | with for|tune and / men's eyes
         ,       ,        ,        ,         ,
      I all | alone | beweep | my out|cast^state,
            ,        ,       x               ,         ,
      And trou|ble deaf | heaven with | my boot|less cries,
            ,      ,        ,          ,          ,
      And look | upon | myself | and curse | my fate.
        ,            ,        ,           ,         ,
      Wishing | me like | to one | more rich | in hope,
       ,           ,              ,            ,            ,
      Featured | like him,| like^him | with friends | possessed,
         ,        ,           ,          ,            ,
      Desi|ring this | man's^art,| and that | man's^scope,
             ,        ,       ,        ,        ,
      With what | I most | enjoy | conten|ted least;
           ,             ,           ,     ,    2    ,
      Yet^in | these thoughts | my self | almost de|spising,
       ,  2         ,          ,          ,         ,
      Happily | I think | on thee,| and then | my state
         ,    2        ,         ,         ,     ,
      (Like to the | lark at | break of | day a|rising)
            ,        ,       T     T    .  T          ,
      From sul|len earth,| sings hymns at hea|ven's gate;
           ,             ,       ,                 ,      ,
      For thy | sweet* love | remem|bered such^/wealth brings
             ,        ,           ,          ,            ,
      That then | I scorn | to change | my state | with kings.
