Devouring Time, Blunt thou the lion’s paws,And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the And burn keen theteeth from long-livedthe fierce phoenix tigers in her jaws, blood;
Make glad and sorrySeasons as thoufleets, And do whateer Thou wilt, swift-footed Time,To the wide world andall her fadingsweets; But I forbid thee one most heinous crime:
O, carve not with thy hours myloves fair brow, Nor draw no lines there with thine antique pen;
Him in thy courseuntainteddoallow For beautys pattern to succeeding men.
Yet, do thy worst, old Time:despite thy wrong, My love shall in my verse ever live young.
