Sonnet 30

        ,            ,               ,    ,         ,
      When to | the ses|sions of / sweet sil|ent thought
         ,       ,       ,                ,     ,
      I sum|mon up | remem|brance of / things past,
          ,          ,         x        ,          ,
      I sigh | the lack | of many | a thing | I sought,
         2      ,      T   T    T     .   T     T     T
      And with old | woes new wail | my dear time's waste:
        ,            ,         ,         ,         ,
      Then can | I drown | an eye, | unused | to flow,
            ,          ,                  ,      ,         ,
      For prec|ious friends | hid in / death's date|less night,
            ,    .  T      T     T           ,          ,
      And weep | afresh love's long | since^can|celled woe,
           ,        2    ,         ,   2   ,          ,
      And moan | the expense | of ma|ny a van|ished sight:
        ,             ,          ,      ,          ,
      Then can | I grieve | at griev|ances |*foregone,
            ,    ,         ,        ,          ,
      And heav|ily | from woe | to woe | tell^ore
           ,        ,          ,      ,       ,
      The sad | account | of fore|bemoan|ed moan,
            ,        ,        ,         ,        ,
      Which I | new pay | as if | not paid | before.
           ,         ,         ,          ,            ,
      But if | the while | I think | on thee,| dear* friend,
           ,       ,         ,          ,        ,
      All los|ses are | restored | and sor|rows end.
