Shakespeare's Sonnets: Let me confess that we two must be twain
SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS (London: G. Eld for T. T. and sold by William Aspley, 1609): c4r-c4v.
2Although our undivided loves are one:
3So shall those blots that do with me remain,
4Without thy help, by me be borne alone.
7Which though it alter not love's sole effect,
8Yet doth it steal sweet hours from love's delight.
9I may not ever-more acknowledge thee,
10Lest my bewailèd guilt should do thee shame,
11Nor thou with public kindness honour me,
12Unless thou take that honour from thy name:
13 But do not so, I love thee in such sort,
14 As thou being mine, mine is thy good report.
