Sonnet 66

Tyr'd with all these for restfull death I cry,
As to behold desert a begger borne,

And needie Nothing trimd in iollitie,
And purest faith vnhappily forsworne,
And gilded honor shamefully misplast,
And maiden vertue rudely strumpeted,
And right perfection wrongfully disgrac’d,
And strength by limping sway disabled,
And arte made tung-tide by authoritie,
And Folly (Doctor-like) controuling skill,
And simple-Truth miscalde Simplicitie,
And captiue-good attending Captaine ill.

Tyr’d with all these, from these would I be gone,
Saue that to dye, I leaue my loue alone.

anyone ever done a numerical count of the acrostic on the left hand side, using Elizabethan abc?

T AAAAAAAAAAA T S

19 11 19 18 addition = 67 (one greater than this sonnet. See Sonnet 67)

FRANCIS is the same number.

Sonnet 67 line 1 and 2:

Ah wherefore with infection should he liue,
And with his presence grace impietie,

the letters of the word GRACE also produce 67.


does this make any sense to anyone?
