When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
For all the day they view things unrespected;
But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
And, darkly bright, are bright in dark directed.
 Then thou, whose shadows doth make bright

How would thy shadow's form happy show
to the clear day with thy much clearer light,
When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so?
How would I say, mine eyes be blessed made
By looking on thee in the living day,


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

Sonnet 43

--William Shakespeare--
