Sonnet 116

       ,        ,            ,               ,    ,
      Let me | not to | the mar|riage of / true minds
         ,       ,     ,       T   .  T    T
      Admit | imped|iments.| Love is not love
             ,        ,        ,    ,        ,
      Which alt|ers when | it alt|era|tion finds,
           ,       ,           ,      ,      ,
      Or bends | with the | remov|er to | remove:
      ,  ,               ,     ,       ,
      O no,/ it is | an ev|er-fix|ed mark,
             ,      ,  ,                  ,       x
      That looks | on temp/ests^and | is nev|er shaken;
          ,         ,        ,      ,     2     ,
      It is | the star | to eve|ry wand|ering bark,
              ,           ,          ,            ,          x
      Whose^worth's | unknown,| although | his height | be taken.
              ,             ,            ,      ,           ,
      Love's^not | Time's^fool,| though ro|sy lips | and cheeks  ??
          ,         ,        ,         ,         ,
      Within | his bend|ing sick|le's comp|ass come;
            ,       ,                 ,     ,           ,
      Love^alt|ers not | with his / brief hours | and weeks,
            ,         ,      x             ,         ,
      But bears | it out | even to | the edge | of doom.
           ,        ,      ,      ,          ,
      If this | be er|ror and | upon | me proved,
         ,       ,         ,        ,       ,
      I nev|er writ,| nor no | man^ev|er loved.
