Shakespeare's  Sonnet . . .
O me, what eyes hath Love put in my head,


&/\&/\&/\&/\&/\&

O me, what eyes hath Love put in my head,

Which have no correspondence with true sight !

Or, if they have, where is my judgment fled,

That censures falsely what they see aright ?

If that be fair whereon my false eyes dote,

What means the world to say it is not so ?

If it be not, then love doth well denote

Love's eye is not so true as all men's:  no,

How can it ?   O, how can Love's eye be true,

That is so vex'd with watching and with tears ?

No marvel, then, though I mistake my view;

The sun itself sees not, till heaven clears.

O cunning Love !   with tears thou keep'st me blind,

Lest eyes well-seeing thy foul faults should find.
