Shakespeare's Sonnets: Those pretty wrongs that liberty commits
SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS (London: G. Eld for T. T. and sold by William Aspley, 1609): d1r-d1v.
1Those pretty wrongs that liberty commits
2When I am some-time absent from thy heart,
3Thy beauty and thy years full well befits,
5Gentle thou art, and therefore to be won,
7And when a woman woos, what woman's son
10And chide thy beauty and thy straying youth
13 Hers, by thy beauty tempting her to thee,
14 Thine, by thy beauty being false to me.
