Coil - V. Cave Of Roses - (sonnet Liii) lyrics

rate me

What is your substance, whereof are you made,<br />

That millions of strange shadows on you tend?<br />

Since every one hath, every one, one shade,<br />

And you, but one, can every shadow lend.<br />

Describe Adonis, and the counterfeit<br />

Is poorly imitated after you;<br />

On Helen's cheek all art of beauty set,<br />

And you in Grecian tires are painted new:<br />

Speak of the spring and foison of the year;<br />

The one doth shadow of your beauty show,<br />

The other as your bounty doth appear;<br />

And you in every blessed shape we know.<br />

In all external grace you have some part,<br />

But you like none, none you, for constant heart.
