Shakespeare's Sonnet 29 reads in full as follows: 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 possess'd, Desiring this man's art and that man's scope, With what I mast enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising, Haply 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 remernber'd such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
Lear: Old fond eyes, Beweep this cause again, I'll pluck ye out.
