Shakespeare's Sonnet 135


  1    Whoever hath her wish, thou hast thy Will,
  2    And Will to boot, and Will in overplus;
  3    More than enough am I that vex thee still,
  4    To thy sweet will making addition thus.
  5    Wilt thou, whose will is large and spacious,
  6    Not once vouchsafe to hide my will in thine?
  7    Shall will in others seem right gracious,
  8    And in my will no fair acceptance shine?
  9    The sea all water, yet receives rain still
 10    And in abundance addeth to his store;
 11    So thou, being rich in Will, add to thy Will
 12    One will of mine, to make thy large Will more.
 13      Let no unkind, no fair beseechers kill;
 14      Think all but one, and me in that one Will.
