Coil - Vii. Madriiax - A - (sonnet Xxix) lyrics

rate me

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,<br />

I all alone beweep my outcast state<br />

And trouble deal heaven with my bootless cries<br />

And look upon myself and curse my fate,<br />

Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,<br />

Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,<br />

Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,<br />

With what I most enjoy contented least;<br />

Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,<br />

Haply I think on thee, and then my state,<br />

Like to the lark at break of day arising<br />

From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;<br />

For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings<br />

That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
