Shakespeare's Sonnet 31

  1    Thy bosom is endeared with all hearts,
  2    Which I by lacking have supposed dead,
  3    And there reigns love and all love's loving parts,
  4    And all those friends which I thought buried.
  5    How many a holy and obsequious tear
  6    Hath dear religious love stol'n from mine eye
  7    As interest of the dead, which now appear
  8    But things remov'd that hidden in thee lie!
  9    Thou art the grave where buried love doth live,
 10    Hung with the trophies of my lovers gone,
 11    Who all their parts of me to thee did give;
 12    That due of many now is thine alone.
 13      Their images I loved I view in thee,
 14      And thou, all they, hast all the all of me.
