Mistress Fitton

SONNET NO. 135

 

        Whoever hath her wish, thou hast thy will,
        And will to boot, and will in over-plus
       More than enough am I that vex thee still,
        To thy sweet will making addition thus,
        Wilt thou whose will is large and spacious
        Not once vouchsafe to hide thy will in thine,
        Shall will in others seem right gracious,
        And in my will no fair acceptance shine:
        The sea all water, yet receives rain still,
        And in abundance addeth to his store,
        So thou being rich in will add to thy will,
        One will of mine to make thy large will more.
        Let no unkind, no faire beseechers kill,
        Think all but one, and me in that one will.


     Note the repetition of the following word, we find-will, will,
    will, will, will, will, will, will, will, will, will, will, will.
