Rosalind's Scroll

Sonnet 01 - I thought once how Theocritus had sung

Sonnet 02 - But only three in all God's universe

Sonnet 03 - Unlike are we, unlike, O princely Heart

Sonnet 04 - Thou hast thy calling to some palace-floor

Sonnet 05 - I lift my heavy heart up solemnly

Sonnet 06 - Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand

Sonnet 07 - The face of all the world is changed, I think

Sonnet 08 - What can I give thee back, O liberal

Sonnet 09 - Can it be right to give what I can give?

Sonnet 10 - Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed

Sonnet 11 - And therefore if to love can be desert

Sonnet 12 - Indeed this very love which is my boast

Sonnet 13 - And wilt thou have me fashion into speech

Sonnet 14 - If thou must love me, let it be for nought

Sonnet 15 - Accuse me not, beseech thee, that I wear

Sonnet 16 - And yet, because thou overcomest so

Sonnet 17 - My poet, thou canst touch on all the notes

Sonnet 18 - I never gave a lock of hair away

Sonnet 19 - The soul's Rialto hath its merchandise

Sonnet 20 - Beloved, my Beloved, when I think

Sonnet 21 - Say over again, and yet once over again

Sonnet 22 - When our two souls stand up erect and strong

Sonnet 23 - Is it indeed so? If I lay here dead

Sonnet 24 - Let the world's sharpness, like a clasping knife

Sonnet 25 - A heavy heart, Beloved, have I borne

Sonnet 26 - I lived with visions for my company

Sonnet 27 - My own Beloved, who hast lifted me

Sonnet 28 - My letters! all dead paper, mute and white

Sonnet 29 - I think of thee!—my thoughts do twine and bud

Sonnet 30 - I see thine image through my tears to-night

Sonnet 31 - Thou comest! all is said without a word

Sonnet 32 - The first time that the sun rose on thine oath

Sonnet 33 - Yes, call me by my pet-name! let me hear

Sonnet 34 - With the same heart, I said, I'll answer thee

Sonnet 35 - If I leave all for thee, wilt thou exchange

Sonnet 36 - When we met first and loved, I did not build

Sonnet 37 - Pardon, oh, pardon, that my soul should make

Sonnet 38 - First time he kissed me, he but only kissed

Sonnet 39 - Because thou hast the power and own'st the grace

Sonnet 40 - Oh, yes! they love through all this world of ours

Sonnet 41 - I thank all who have loved me in their hearts

Sonnet 42 - 'My future will not copy fair my past'

Sonnet 43 - How do I love thee? Let me count the ways

Sonnet 44 - Beloved, thou hast brought me many flowers
