Coil - Vi. Sun Ascension A - (sonnet Cxlviii) lyrics

rate me

O me, what eyes hath Love put in my head,<br />

Which have no correspondence with true sight!<br />

Or, if they have, where is my judgment fled,<br />

That censures falsely what they see aright?<br />

If that be fair whereon my false eyes dote,<br />

What means the world to say it is not so?<br />

If it be not, then love doth well denote<br />

Love's eye is not so true as all men's 'No.'<br />

How can it? O, how can Love's eye be true,<br />

That is so vex'd with watching and with tears?<br />

No marvel then, though I mistake my view;<br />

The sun itself sees not till heaven clears.<br />

O cunning Love! with tears thou keep'st me blind,<br />

Lest eyes well-seeing thy foul faults should find.
