Shakespeare's Sonnet 110

  1    Alas, 'tis true I have gone here and there
  2    And made myself a motley to the view,
  3    Gor'd mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most dear,
  4    Made old offences of affections new;
  5    Most true it is that I have look'd on truth
  6    Askance and strangely: but, by all above,
  7    These blenches gave my heart another youth,
  8    And worse essays prov'd thee my best of love.
  9    Now all is done, have what shall have no end:
 10    Mine appetite I never more will grind
 11    On newer proof, to try an older friend,
 12    A god in love, to whom I am confin'd.
 13      Then give me welcome, next my heaven the best,
 14      Even to thy pure and most most loving breast.
