Sonnet 028: How Can I Then Return In Happy Plight Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


How can I then return in happy plightA
That am debarred the benefit of restB
When day's oppression is not eased by nightA
But day by night and night by day oppressedB
And each though enemies to either's reignC
Do in consent shake hands to torture meD
The one by toil the other to complainC
How far I toil still farther off from theeD
I tell the day to please him thou art brightA
And dost him grace when clouds do blot the heavenE
So flatter I the swart complexioned nightA
When sparkling stars twire not thou gild'st the evenF
But day doth daily draw my sorrows longerG
And night doth nightly make grief's length seem strongerG

William Shakespeare
