Sonnet 39

         ,          ,           ,        ,        ,
      O how | thy worth | with man|ners may | I sing,
             ,         ,         ,        ,        ,
      When thou | art all | the bet|ter part | of me?
            ,          ,       ,     2       T    T    T
      What can | mine^own | praise to mine^|own self bring?
            ,      2    ,          ,                ,     ,
      And what | is it but | mine^own | when I / praise thee?
      ,            ,         ,      ,       ,
      Even | for this,| let^us | divi|ded live,
       .   T    T    T      T    T   .  T       ,
      And our dear love | lose name of sing|le one,
            ,         ,    ,      ,         ,
      That by | this sep|ara|tion I | may give:
            ,         ,            ,         ,        ,
      That due | to thee | which thou | deservst | alone:
         ,         ,       ,          ,             ,
      O ab|sence what | a tor|ment wouldst | thou prove,
          2    ,          ,     ,          T    T     T
      Were it not | thy sour | leisure | gave sweet leave,
          ,      ,          ,             ,           ,
      To ent|ertain | the time | with thoughts | of love,
              ,            ,           ,        ,        ,
      Which time | and thoughts | so sweet|ly doth | deceive.
            ,           ,        ,     .   T   T    T
      And that | thou teach|est how | to make one twain,
           ,      2      ,     T    T    T         ,
      By prai|sing him here | who doth hence | remain.
