SONNET: 110, by         Recitation     Poet's Biography
First Line: Alas! 'tis true I have gone here and there
Last Line: Even to thy pure and most most loving breast.
Subject(s): Gays & Lesbians; Homoeroticism; Lesbians; Gay Women; Gay Men


Alas, 'tis true I have gone here and there
And made myself a motley to the view,
Gored mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most dear,
Made old offences of affections new;
Most true it is that I have look'd on truth
Askance and strangely: but, by all above,
These blenches gave my heart another youth,
And worse essays proved thee my best of love.
Now all is done, have what shall have no end:
Mine appetite I never more will grind
On newer proof, to try an older friend,
A god in love, to whom I am confined.
Then give me welcome, next my heaven the best,
Even to thy pure and most most loving breast.
