Sonnet 41

              ,        ,           ,     ,        ,
      Those pret|ty wrongs | that lib|erty | commits,
           ,        ,        ,        ,          ,
      When I | am some|time^ab|sent from | thy heart,
            ,       ,          ,       T    T   .  T
      Thy beau|ty, and | thy years | full well befits,
            ,          ,       ,         ,           ,
      For still | tempta|tion fol|lows where | thou art.
       ,             ,          ,         ,       ,
      Gentle | thou art,| and there|fore to | be won,
        ,   2           ,           ,        ,        ,
      Beauteous | thou art,|*therefore | to be | assailed.
            ,       ,       ,           ,        ,
      And when | a wo|man woos,| what* wo|man's son
             ,       ,           ,         ,          ,
      Will sour|ly leave | her till | he have | prevailed?
            ,        ,            ,           ,         ,
      Aye* me,| but yet | thou mightst | my seat | forbear,
            ,           ,       ,          ,         ,
      And chide | thy beau|ty, and | thy stray|ing youth,
            ,          ,          ,    ,       ,
      Who lead | thee^in | their ri|ot e|ven there
              ,           ,          ,     .  T   T    T
      Where thou | art forced | to break | a twofold truth:
        ,             ,       ,        ,         ,
      Hers by | thy beau|ty temp|ting her | to thee,
        ,              ,      ,       ,         ,
      Thine by | thy beau|ty be|ing false | to me.
