Sonnet 62

        T   .   T    T        ,        ,          ,
      Sin of self-love | posses|seth all | mine^eye
           ,         ,         ,        ,       ,
      And all | my soul,| and all | my ev|ery part;
           ,          ,           ,       ,    ,
      And for | this sin | there is | no rem|edy,
          ,        ,        ,       ,        ,
      It is | so groun|ded in|ward in | my heart.
           ,          ,        ,         ,        ,
      Methinks | no face | so gra|cious is | as mine,
           ,          ,          ,          ,        ,
      No shape | so true,|  no truth | of such | account;
           ,        ,          ,      T    T  .  T
      And for | myself | mine^own | worth do define,
         ,        ,           ,     ,          ,
      As I | all^oth|er in / all worths | surmount.
            ,         ,            ,       ,        ,
      But when | my glass | shows^me | myself | indeed
        ,             ,              ,        ,     ,
      Beated | and chopped | with tanned | anti|quity,
            ,      T    T    T          ,   2    ,
      Mine^own | self-love quite | contra|ry I read;
        T   T   T    ,           2  ,     ,
      Self so self-|loving | were ini|quity.
             ,        ,          ,        ,         ,
      'Tis thee,| myself,| that for | myself | I praise,
        ,            ,           ,      ,         ,
      Painting | my age | with beau|ty of | thy days.
