Shakespeare's Sonnet 150

  1    O, from what pow'r hast thou this pow'rful might
  2    With insufficiency my heart to sway,
  3    To make me give the lie to my true sight,
  4    And swear that brightness doth not grace the day?
  5    Whence hast thou this becoming of things ill,
  6    That in the very refuse of thy deeds
  7    There is such strength and warrantize of skill
  8    That, in my mind, thy worst all best exceeds?
  9    Who taught thee how to make me love thee more,
 10    The more I hear and see just cause of hate?
 11    O, though I love what others do abhor,
 12    With others thou shouldst not abhor my state:
 13      If thy unworthiness rais'd love in me,
 14      More worthy I to be beloved of thee.
