Sonnet 1Edmund Spenser HAppy ye leaues when as those lilly hands, Awhich hold my life in their dead doing might Bshall handle you and hold in loues soft bands, Alykecaptiues trembling at the victors sight. BAnd happy lines, on which with starry light, Bthose lamping eyes will deigne sometimes to look Cand reade the sorrowes of my dying spright, Bwritten with teares in harts close bleeding book. CAnd happy rymesbath'd in the sacred brooke, Cof Helicon whence she deriued is, Dwhen ye behold that Angels blessed looke, Cmy soules long lacked foode, my heauensblis. DLeaues, lines, and rymes, seeke her to please alone, Ewhom if ye please, I care for other none. E
Sonnet XXXISir Philip Sidney With how sad steps, O Moon, thou climb'st the skies ! AHow silently, and with how wan a face ! BWhat, may it be that even in heavenly place BThat busy archer his sharp arrows tries? ASure, if that long with love-acquainted eyes ACan judge of love, thou feel'st a lover's case;BI read it in thy looks; thy languisht grace BTo me that feel the like, thy state descries. AThen, even of fellowship, O Moon, tell me, CIs constant love deemed there but want of wit? DAre beauties there as proud as here they be? CDo they above love to be loved, and yet D Those lovers scorn whom that love doth possess? E Do they call virtue there, ungratefulness? E
