words by William Shakespeare

Some glory in their birth, some in their skill,
Some in their wealth, some in their body’s force,
Some in their garments, though new fangled ill;
Some in their hawks and (their) hounds, some in their horse;
And every humour hath his adjunct pleasure,
Wherein it finds a joy above the rest:
But these particulars are not my measure;
All these I better in one general best.
Thy love is better than high birth to me,
Richer than wealth, prouder than garments’ cost,
Of more delight than hawks or horses be;
And having thee, of all men’s pride I boast:
Wretched in this alone, that thou may’st take
All this away, and me most wretched make.
