8. Music to hear, why hear'st thou music sadly? -- 18. Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? -- 25. Let those who are in favour with their stars -- 35. No more be griev'd at that which thou hast done -- 53. What is your substance, whereof are you made -- 64. When I have seen by Time's fell hand defac'd -- 65. Since brass, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundless sea -- 66. Tir'd with all these, for restful death I cry -- 87. Farewell! thou are too dear for my possessing -- 91. Some glory in their birth, some in their skill --94. They that have pow'r to hurt and will do none -- 107. Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul -- 127. In the old age black was not counted fair -- 128. How oft when thou, my music, music play'st -- 144. Two loves I have, of comfort and despair
