Contents: Sonnets: Lift up your hearts in Gumber, laugh the weald; I was like one that keeps the deck by night; Rise up and do begin the day's adorning; The winter moon has such a quiet car; Whatever moisture nourishes the rose; Youth gave you to me, but I'll not believe; Mortality is but the stuff you wear; Not for the luckless buds our roots may bear; That which is one they shear and make it twain; Shall any man for whose strong love another; They that have taken wages of things done; Beauty that parent is to deathless rhyme; What are the names for beauty? who shall praise; Love wooing honour, honour's love did win; Your life is like a little winter's day; Now shall the certain purpose of my soul; Because my faltering feet may fail to dare; When you to Acheron's ugly water come; We will not whisper, we have found the place; I went to sleep at dawn in Tuscany; Almighty god, whose justice like a sun; Mother of all my cities once there lay; November is that historied emperor; Hoar time about the house betakes him slow; It freezes all across a soundless sky; O my companion, o my sister sleep; Are you the end, despair, or the poor least; But oh! Not lovely Helen, nor the pride; The world's a stage, the light is in one's eyes, and I'm the super man, the trifling entrance fee; They that have been beside us all the day; Of meadows drowsy with trinacrian bees; Would that I had L300,000; Do not believe when lovely lips report; Believing truth is staring at the sun; Believe too little and go down despairing; Because I find forekowledge in my soul --
