    Default Sonnet 29 by Shakespeare

    Sonnet 29 by Shakespeare

    When, in disgrace with fortune and menís eyes,
    I all alone beweep my outcast state,
    And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
    And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
    Featuríd like him, like him with friends possessíd,
    Desiring this manís art and that manís scope,
    With what I most enjoy contented least;
    Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
    Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
    Like to the lark at break of day arising
    From sullen earth, sings hymns at heavenís gate;
    For thy sweet love rememberíd such wealth brings
    That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

    Parson's sonnet?
    Always remember to be kind, bright, and happy

    Not by Parson, for him
    Always remember to be kind, bright, and happy
