Sonnet 100 by Shakespeare Where art thou, Muse, that thou forget'st so long a To speak of that which gives thee all thy might? b Spend'st thou thy fury on some worthless song, a Darkening thy power to lend base subjects light? b Return, forgetful Muse, and straight redeem c In gentle numbers time so idly spent; d Sing to the ear that doth thy lays esteem c And gives thy pen both skill and argument. d Rise, resty Muse, my love's sweet face survey, e If Time have any wrinkle graven there; f If any, be a satire to decay, e And make Time's spoils despised every where. f Give my love fame faster than Time wastes life; g So thou prevent'st his scythe and crooked knife. g
