Shakespeare's Sonnets: Not from the stars do I my judgement pluck

Sonnet 14

Original Text: 
SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS (London: G. Eld for T. T. and sold by William Aspley, 1609): b3v-b4r.
1Not from the stars do I my judgement pluck,
2And yet me thinks I have astronomy,
3But not to tell of good, or evil luck,
4Of plagues, of dearths, or season's quality,
7Or say with princes if it shall go well
9But from thine eyes my knowledge I derive,
10And constant stars in them I read such art
11As truth and beauty shall together thrive
12If from thy self, to store thou would'st convert:
13    Or else of thee this I prognosticate,
14    Thy end is truth's and beauty's doom and date.


5] Neither can I forecast when something will happen. Back to Line
6] Pointing] Appointing. Back to Line
8] oft predict] frequent prediction. Back to Line
