Sonnet 51

            ,         ,        ,          ,        ,
      Thus^can | my love | excuse | the slow | offense
                ,    ,       ,           ,        ,
      Of my / dull bear|er when | from thee | I speed:
             ,           ,           ,         ,           ,
      From where | thou^art,| why should | I haste | me thence,
           ,       ,        ,             ,   ,
      Till I | return | of pos|ting is / no need.
          ,        ,                ,    ,            ,
      O what | excuse | will my / poor beast | then find,
             ,         ,    ,         ,          ,
      When swift | extre|mity | can seem | but slow?
              ,         ,              ,       ,         ,
      Then should | I spur | though* moun|ted on | the wind,
           ,        ,        ,        ,         ,
      In wing|ed speed | no mo|tion shall | I know,
            ,          ,           ,       ,           ,
      Then can | no* horse | with my | desire | keep^pace.
             ,        ,        ,           ,      2     ,
      Therefore | desire |(of per|fectst love | being made)
              ,      T   T    T       2     ,       ,
      Shall neigh | no dull flesh | in his fie|ry race;
            ,          ,           ,         ,         ,
      But love,| for love,| thus shall | excuse | my jade,
              ,          ,      ,         ,         ,
      Since^from | thee go|ing he | went will|ful slow,
         ,                 ,          ,          ,         ,
      Towards thee | I'll run,| and give | him leave | to go.
