Shakespeare's Sonnets: Some say thy fault is youth, some wantonness
SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS (London: G. Eld for T. T. and sold by William Aspley, 1609): f4v-g1r.
1Some say thy fault is youth, some wantonness,
2Some say thy grace is youth and gentle sport:
5As on the finger of a thronèd queen,
6The basest jewel will be well esteem'd,
7So are those errors that in thee are seen,
8To truths translated, and for true things deem'd.
9How many lambs might the stern wolf betray,
10If like a lamb he could his looks translate?
13 But do not so, I love thee in such sort,
