Sonnet 130 (1609)

                                   My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;

                                   Coral is far more red than her lips' red;

                                   If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;

                                   If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

                                   I have seen roses damasked, red and white,

                                   But no such roses see I in her cheeks;

                                   And in some perfumes there is more delight

                                   Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

                                   I love to hear her speak, yet well I know

                                   That music has a far more pleasing sound;

                                   I grant I never saw a goddess go;

                                  My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.

                                  And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare

                                  As any she belied with false compare.
