Sonnet 96

            ,          ,          ,           ,       ,
      Some say | thy fault | is youth,| some wan|tonness,
            ,          ,          ,          ,        ,
      Some say | thy grace | is youth | and gen|tle sport;
             ,            ,           ,          ,          ,
      Both grace | and faults | are loved | of more | and less:
             ,        ,    ,                  ,        ,
      Thou makst | faults gra/ces that | to thee | resort.
          ,        ,       ,       ,         ,
      As on | the fin|ger of | a thron|ed queen
           ,       ,       ,         ,        ,
      The bas|est jew|el will | be well | esteemed:
          ,           ,        ,         ,          ,
      So are | those^er|rors that | in thee | are seen
           ,            ,                   ,     ,      ,
      To truths | translat|ed, and for // true things deemed.
           ,      ,                   ,     ,        ,
      How ma|ny lambs | might the / stern wolf | betray,
           ,        ,         ,           ,           ,
      If like | a lamb | he could | his looks | translate.
           ,     ,         ,             ,      ,
      How ma|ny gaz|ers mightst | thou lead | away,
           ,             ,            ,          ,          ,
      If thou | wouldst^use | the strength | of all | thy state?
           ,        ,       ,                ,    ,
      But do | not so,| I love | thee in / such sort,
           ,      2     ,      ,             ,        ,
      As thou | being mine,| mine is | thy good | report.
