Sonnet 46

            ,          ,          ,      ,       ,
      Mine^eye | and heart | are^at | a mor|tal war,
       ,          ,          ,         ,         ,
      How to | divide | the con|quest of | thy sight;
            ,         ,          ,           ,            ,
      Mine^eye | my heart | thy pic|ture's sight | would bar,
           ,           ,          ,       ,          ,
      My heart | mine^eye | the free|dom of | that right.
           ,            ,            ,        ,          ,
      My heart | doth^plead | that thou | in him | dost^lie,
          ,      ,        ,             ,        ,
      A clos|et nev|er pierced | with crys|tal eyes,
       ,            ,        ,           ,       ,
      But the | defen|dant doth | that plea | deny,
            ,        ,          ,        ,         ,
      And says | in him | thy fair | appear|ance lies.
        2    ,          ,      ,      ,      ,
      To decide | this ti|tle is | impan|nelled
          ,            ,           ,        ,         ,
      A quest | of thoughts,| all^ten|ants to | the heart,
           ,          ,        ,      ,     ,
      And by | their ver|dict is | deter|mined
       .    T     T    T   x      2        T     T      T
      The clear eye's moi|ety, and the | dear heart's part,
           ,           ,      ,              ,         ,
      As thus,| mine^eye's | due is | their^out|ward part,
                  ,      ,             ,        ,         ,
      And my / heart's right, | their^in|ward love | of heart.
