Sonnet 47

          ,           ,          ,          ,          ,
      Betwixt | mine^eye | and heart | a league | is took,
       .    T    T    T      T    T   T   2     ,      o
      And each doth good | turns now un|to the oth|er:
             ,          ,        ,         ,        ,
      When that | mine^eye | is fam|ished for | a look,
           ,          ,           ,          ,          ,        o
      Or heart | in love | with sighs | himself | doth smo|ther,
                  ,     ,         ,        ,           ,
      With my / love's pic|ture then | my eye | doth feast,
           ,         ,       ,         ,         ,
      And to | the pain|ted ban|quet bids | my heart;
        ,        ,          ,               ,      ,
      Ano|ther time | mine^eye | is my / heart's guest,
           ,           ,           ,           ,         ,
      And in | his thoughts | of love | doth share | a part:
          ,       ,        ,        ,        ,
      So ei|ther by | thy pic|ture or | my love,
            ,       ,        ,         ,           ,
      Thy self | away,| art pre|sent still | with me,
            ,     ,   ,           2         T      T     T
      For thou | not far/ther than my | thoughts canst move,
          ,        ,            ,          ,           ,
      And I | am still | with them,| and they | with thee.
          ,          ,          ,        ,        ,
      Or if | they sleep,| thy pic|ture in | my sight
         ,          ,           ,            ,         ,
      Awakes | my heart,| to heart's | and eyes' | delight.
