Sonnet 143

       ,          ,        ,          ,         ,
      Lo as | a care|ful house|wife runs | to catch
       ,            ,           ,          ,        ,
      One of | her fea|thered crea|tures broke | away,
        T    T   .    T          ,      T    T    .   T
      Sets down her babe | and makes | all swift dispatch
        2     ,               ,    ,      T     T    T
      In pursuit | of the / thing she | would have stay:
              ,        ,        ,       ,              ,
      Whilst^her | neglec|ted child | holds her | in chase,
        T    .   T    T           ,      ,         ,
      Cries to catch her | whose^bu|sy care | is bent,
          ,        ,            ,         ,          ,
      To fol|low that | which flies | before | her face:
            ,               ,   ,         ,       ,
      Not* pri|zing her / poor in|fant's dis|content;
       ,          ,            ,            ,            ,
      So runst^|thou *af|ter that | which flies | from thee,
             ,         ,      ,             ,       ,
      Whilst I | thy babe | chase thee | afar | behind,
           ,          ,           ,           ,        ,
      But if | thou catch | thy hope | turn back | to me:
            ,         ,          ,      ,            ,
      And play | the mo|ther's part | kiss me,| be kind.
           ,        ,           ,            ,          ,
      So will | I pray | that thou | mayst^have | thy Will,
       .   T    T    T               ,   ,        ,
      If thou turn back | and my / loud cry|ing still.
