Sonnet 64

        ,   2         ,         T      T    T        ,
      When I have | seen by | Time's fell hand | defaced
       .    T    T     T     .  T   T   T       ,
      The rich proud cost | of outworn bur|ied age
             ,        ,        x     .  T    T    T
      When some|time lof|ty towers | I see down-razed
            ,        ,       ,         ,        ,
      And brass | eter|nal slave | to mor|tal rage
           ,          ,         ,      ,        ,
      When I | have seen | the hun|gry o|cean gain
         ,        ,         ,       ,         ,
      Advan|tage on | the king|dom of | the shore,
                  ,    ,     ,            ,   2    ,
      And the / firm soil | win of | the wat|ery main,
           ,        ,            ,          ,           ,
      Increas|ing store | with loss,| and loss | with store;
        ,             ,          ,      ,           ,
      When I | have seen | such^in|terchange | of state,
           ,         ,         ,       ,      ,
      Or state | itself | confoun|ded to | decay;
       ,             ,          ,         ,    ,
      Ruin | hath taught | me thus | to rum|inate
             ,           ,          ,         ,       ,
      That Time | will come | and take | my love | away.
              ,          ,       ,            ,         ,
      This^thought | is as | a death | which can|not choose
            ,         ,      ,              ,          ,
      But weep | to have | that which^|it fears | to lose.
