Shakespeare's Sonnets: When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see
SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS (London: G. Eld for T. T. and sold by William Aspley, 1609): d1v-d2r.
3But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
6How would thy shadow's form, form happy show
7To the clear day with thy much clearer light,
9How would (I say) mine eyes be blessèd made
10By looking on thee in the living day,
11When in dead night their fair imperfect shade
12Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay?
13 All days are nights to see till I see thee,
14 And nights bright days when dreams do shew thee me.
