At heaven’s gate at break of day

At heaven’s gate, at break of day,

Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,

Haply I think of thee – and then my state

(like the lark at break of day arising

from sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate ;

for thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings,

that then I scorn to change my state with kings.


William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Sonnet 29.
