    Than in the breath that from m y m is tres s reeks .

    That mus ic hath a far more pleas ing s ound;

    My mis tres s when s he walks treads on the ground.

    And yet, by heaven, I think m y love as rare

    As any s he belied with fals e com pare.

    One day I wrote her name upon the s trand,

    but came the waves and was hed it away:

    again I wrote it with a s econd hand,

    but came the tide , and made my pains his prey.

    Vain man, s aid s he, that does t in vain as s ay,

    a m ortal thing s o to im m ortalize .

    for I m ys elf s hall like to this decay,

    and eek my name be wiped out likewis e.

    Not s o, (quoth I) let bas er things devis e

    to die in dus t, but you s hall live by fame:

    my vers e your virtues rare s hall eternize ,

    and in the heavens write your glorious name.

    Where whenas death s hall all the world s ubdue,

    our love s hall live, and later life renew.
