Shakespeare's Sonnets: When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes
1When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
4And look upon my self and curse my fate,
5Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
6Featur'd like him, like him with friends possess't,
8With what I most enjoy contented least;
13 For thy sweet love rememb'red such wealth brings,
14 That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
