Coil - Iv. Finite Bees - (sonnet Xliii) lyrics

rate me

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,<br />

For all the day they view things unrespected;<br />

But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,<br />

And darkly bright are bright in dark directed.<br />

Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright,<br />

How would thy shadow's form form happy show<br />

To the clear day with thy much clearer light,<br />

When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so!<br />

How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made<br />

By looking on thee in the living day,<br />

When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade<br />

Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay!<br />

All days are nights to see till I see thee,<br />

And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.
