Sonnet 75

          ,         ,          ,           ,         ,
      So are | you to | my thoughts | as food | to life,
       .  T   T    T           x       ,              ,
      Or as sweet-sea|soned showers | are to | the ground;
           ,          ,         ,       ,             ,
      And for | the peace | of you | I hold | such strife
           ,        ,      ,           ,          ,
      As twixt | a mi|ser and | his wealth | is found.
            ,         ,      ,       ,      ,
      Now proud | as an | enjoy|er, and | anon
        ,             ,         ,           ,           ,        o
      Doubting | the fil|ching age | will steal | his trea|sure;
            ,         ,        ,         ,       ,
      Now coun|ting best | to be | with you | alone,
            ,          ,          ,          ,         ,        o
      Then bet|tered that | the world | may see | my plea|sure:
        T   T   T      ,           ,          2       ,
      Sometime all | full with | feasting | on your sight,
           ,        ,     ,     ,                ,
      And by | and by | clean starv/ed for | a look;
          ,        ,       ,      ,       ,
      Posses|sing or | pursu|ing no | delight
             ,        ,         ,          ,         ,
      Save^what | is had,| or must | from you | be took.
            ,       ,         ,        ,        ,
      Thus^do | I pine | and sur|feit day | by day,
           ,      ,        ,        ,       ,
      Or glut|toning | on all,| or all | away.
 
 
Lines 6 and 8 are hexameter
