Sonnet 113

by William Shakespeare

Memorize the poem, Sonnet 113 by William Shakespeare.

Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind; And that which governs me to go about Doth part his function and is partly blind, Seems seeing, but effectually is out; For it no form delivers to the heart Of bird, of flower, or shape which it doth latch: Of his quick objects hath the mind no part, Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch; For if it see the rud’st or gentlest sight, The most sweet favour or deformed’st creature, The mountain or the sea, the day or night: The crow, or dove, it shapes them to your feature.     Incapable of more, replete with you,     My most true mind thus maketh mine untrue.
