When in Disgrace with Fortune and Men's Eyes (Sonnet 29) - Florence Welch


When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes

I all alone beweep my outcast state

And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries


And look upon myself and curse my fate


Wishing me like to one more rich in hope


Featured like him like him with friends possessed


Desiring this man's art and that man's scope


With what I most enjoy contented least


Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising


Happly I think on thee and then my state


Like to 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


***Lyrics are from third-parties***
