Shakespeare's Sonnet 92


  1    But do thy worst to steal thyself away,
  2    For term of life thou art assured mine,
  3    And life no longer than thy love will stay,
  4    For it depends upon that love of thine.
  5    Then need I not to fear the worst of wrongs,
  6    When in the least of them my life hath end.
  7    I see a better state to me belongs
  8    Than that which on thy humour doth depend;
  9    Thou canst not vex me with inconstant mind,
 10    Since that my life on thy revolt doth lie.
 11    O, what a happy title do I find,
 12    Happy to have thy love, happy to die!
 13      But what's so blessed-fair that fears no blot?
 14      Thou mayst be false, and yet I know it not.
