The Sonnets Cxli - In Faith I Do Not Love Thee With Mine Eyes Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


In faith I do not love thee with mine eyesA
For they in thee a thousand errors noteB
But 'tis my heart that loves what they despiseA
Who in despite of view is pleased to doteB
Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delightedC
Nor tender feeling to base touches proneD
Nor taste nor smell desire to be invitedC
To any sensual feast with thee aloneD
But my five wits nor my five senses canE
Dissuade one foolish heart from serving theeF
Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a manE
Thy proud heart's slave and vassal wretch to beF
Only my plague thus far I count my gainG
That she that makes me sin awards me painG
