Sonnet 122

            ,         ,        ,        ,         ,
      Thy gift,| thy ta|bles, are | within | my brain
        ,    ,                   ,       ,    ,
      Full char/actered | with last|ing mem|ory,
              ,        ,         ,       ,        ,
      Which^shall | above | that i|dle rank | remain,
       .  T   T    T      x          ,    ,
      Beyond all date,| even to | eter|nity:
          ,         ,          ,         ,           ,
      Or^at | the least,| so long | as brain | and heart
            ,     ,       ,       ,        ,
      Have fac|ulty | by na|ture to | subsist;
             ,         ,        ,  2     ,           ,
      Till each | to razed | obli|vion yield | his part
           ,         ,       ,      ,          ,
      Of thee,| thy rec|ord nev|er can | be missed.
             ,       ,         ,          ,          ,
      That poor | reten|tion could | not so | much^hold,
            ,       ,               ,    ,         ,
      Nor need | I tal|lies thy / dear love | to score;
            ,          ,           ,        ,        ,
      Therefore | to give | them from | me was | I bold,
       .   T     T    T        ,        ,            ,
      To trust those ta|bles that | receive | thee more:
           ,        ,        ,      ,        ,
      To keep | an ad|junct^to | remem|ber thee
            ,       ,        ,       ,        ,
      Were to | import | forget|fulness | in me.
