Sonnet 49

          ,            ,        ,             ,    ,
      Against | that time |(if ev|er that / time come)
           ,          ,           ,         ,       ,
      When I | shall see | thee frown | on my | defects,
            ,         ,           ,         ,       ,
      When as | thy love | hath cast | his ut|most sum,
         ,              ,      ,       ,          ,
      Called to | that au|dit by | advised | respects;
          ,            ,           ,             ,         ,
      Against | that time | when thou | shalt strange|ly pass,
             ,        ,          ,          ,           ,
      And scarce|ly greet | me with | that sun | thine^eye,
             ,        ,        ,          ,         ,
      When love | conver|ted from | the thing | it was
             ,         ,        ,        ,     ,
      Shall rea|sons find | of set|tled gra|vity;
          ,            ,       ,        ,          ,
      Against | that time | do I | ensconce | me here,
          ,          ,         ,         ,        ,
      Within | the know|ledge of | mine^own | desert,
            ,         ,        ,          ,        ,
      And this | my hand,| against | my self | uprear,
           ,          ,       ,        ,         ,
      To guard | the law|ful rea|sons on | thy part,
       .   T     T   T          ,            ,           ,
      To leave poor me | thou hast | the strength | of laws,
             ,         ,       ,        ,          ,
      Since why | to love | I can | allege | no* cause.
