1 What is your substance, whereof are you made,
2 That millions of strange shadows on you tend?
3 Since every one hath, every one, one shade,
4 And you, but one, can every shadow lend.
5 Describe Adonis, and the counterfeit
6 Is poorly imitated after you;
7 On Helen's cheek all art of beauty set,
8 And you in Grecian tires are painted new:
9 Speak of the spring and foison of the year;
10 The one doth shadow of your beauty show,
11 The other as your bounty doth appear;
12 And you in every blessed shape we know.
13 In all external grace you have some part,
14 But you like none, none you, for constant heart.
