Sonnet 74

           ,       ,        ,           ,       ,
      But be | conten|ted when | that fell | arrest
       .  T    T    T           ,      ,     ,
      Without all bail | shall car|ry me | away,
           ,          ,          ,          ,     ,
      My life | hath^in | this line | some^in|terest,
             ,       ,   2    ,            ,            ,
      Which for | memor|ial still | with thee | shall stay.
             ,        ,        ,           ,        ,
      When thou | review|est this,| thou dost | review
           ,      ,         ,      ,          ,
      The ve|ry part | was con|secrate | to thee:
            ,           ,          ,            ,        ,
      The earth | can have | but earth,| which is | his due;
            x          ,          ,        ,        ,
      My spirit | is thine | the bet|ter part | of me:
           ,           ,          ,          ,          ,
      So then | thou hast | but lost | the dregs | of life,
            ,         ,         ,     ,       ,
      The prey | of worms,| my bod|y be|ing dead;
           ,       ,         ,        ,        ,
      The cow|ard con|quest of | a wretch|'s knife,
            ,         ,        ,      ,     ,
      Too base | of thee | to be | remem|bered.
            ,          ,         ,           ,        ,
      The worth | of that,| is that | which it | contains,
            ,         ,          ,           ,        ,
      And that | is this,| and this | with thee | remains.
