Coil - Viii. Escalation - B - (sonnet Lv) lyrics

rate me

Not marble, nor the gilded monuments<br />

Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;<br />

But you shall shine more bright in these contents<br />

Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time.<br />

When wasteful war shall statues overturn,<br />

And broils root out the work of masonry,<br />

Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn<br />

The living record of your memory.<br />

'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity<br />

Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room<br />

Even in the eyes of all posterity<br />

That wear this world out to the ending doom.<br />

So, till the judgment that yourself arise,<br />

You live in this, and dwell in lover's eyes.
