  • Artist Info: When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,<br />
    I all alone beweep my outcast state <br />
    And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries<br />
    And look upon myself and curse my fate, <br />
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, <br />
    Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,<br />
    Desiring this man's art and that man's scope, <br />
    With what I most enjoy contented least; <br />
    Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,<br />
    Haply I think on thee, and then my state, <br />
    Like to the lark at break of day arising <br />
    From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;<br />
    For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings<br />
    That then I scorn to change my state with kings. heart
