1 Shakespeare Sonnet # 43 Alyson Benitez

2 Quatrain 1 A: When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
B: For all the day they view things unrespected; A: But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee, B: And darkly bright are bright in dark directed.

3 Quatrain 2 C: Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright,
D: How would thy shadow's form form happy show C: To the clear day with thy much clearer light, D: When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so!

4 Quatrain 3 E: How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made
F: By looking on thee in the living day, E: When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade F: Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay!

5 Couplet G: All days are nights to see till I see thee,
 G: And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.
