Sonnet 47...

Sonnet 47 XLVII


1. Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,

2. And each doth good turns now unto the other:

3. When that mine eye is famish'd for a look,

4. Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,

5. With my love's picture then my eye doth feast,

6. And to the painted banquet bids my heart;

7. Another time mine eye is my heart's guest,

8. And in his thoughts of love doth share a part:

9. So, either by thy picture or my love,

10. Thy self away, art present still with me;

11. For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move,

12. And I am still with them, and they with thee;

13. Or, if they sleep, thy picture in my sight

14. Awakes my heart, to heart's and eyes' delight.

~Shakespeare

Have a  blessed day!
