Shakespeares Hundred Sekstende Sonet


Gid aldrig jeg må se trofaste sinds
forening hindret. Kærlighed beskæmmes,
hvis dens værdi er som den lette vinds
og den i tid forfalder til at glemmes.
Nej, nej, den er det klippefaste mærke,
som ingen storm kan bringe til at fejle,
en stjerne for hver båd på bølger stærke,
af ukendt værd og vægt, men let at pejle.
Sand kærlighed for Tiden aldrig gruer,
skønt Tidens le går hårdt til rosenkinder;
den følger ikke timer eller uger,
men holder ved, til dommedag oprinder.
Hvis det er usandhed, af mig bedrevet,
har ingen elsket og jeg aldrig skrevet.
