Sonnet 47: Betwixt Mine Eye and Heart a League Is Took
Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,
And each doth good turns now unto the other:
When that mine eye is famished for a look,
Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,
With my love's picture then my eye doth feast
And to the painted banquet bids my heart;
Another time, mine eye is my heart's guest
And in his thoughts of love doth share a part.
So either by thy picture of my love,
Thyself away are present still with me,
For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move
And I am still with them, and they with thee;
Or if they sleep, thy picture in my sight
Awakes my heart, to heart's and eye's delight.
