The Sonnets Cxlii - Love Is My Sin, And Thy Dear Virtue Hate Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Love is my sin and thy dear virtue hateA
Hate of my sin grounded on sinful lovingB
O but with mine compare thou thine own stateA
And thou shalt find it merits not reprovingB
Or if it do not from those lips of thineC
That have profan'd their scarlet ornamentsD
And seal'd false bonds of love as oft as mineC
Robb'd others' beds' revenues of their rentsE
Be it lawful I love thee as thou lov'st thoseF
Whom thine eyes woo as mine importune theeG
Root pity in thy heart that when it growsF
Thy pity may deserve to pitied beG
If thou dost seek to have what thou dost hideH
By self example mayst thou be deniedH
