Shakespeare's Sonnet 136

  1    If thy soul check thee that I come so near,
  2    Swear to thy blind soul that I was thy Will,
  3    And will, thy soul knows, is admitted there;
  4    Thus far for love my love-suit, sweet, fulfil.
  5    Will will fulfil the treasure of thy love,
  6    Ay, fill it full with wills, and my will one.
  7    In things of great receipt with ease we prove
  8    Among a number one is reckon'd none:
  9    Then in the number let me pass untold,
 10    Though in thy store's account I one must be,
 11    For nothing hold me, so it please thee hold
 12    That nothing me, a something sweet to thee:
 13      Make but my name thy love, and love that still,
 14      And then thou lovest me, for my name is Will.
