The Sonnets1609Farewell! Thou art too dear for my possessing,

And like enough thou know'st thy estimate,

The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;

My bonds in thee are all determinate.

For how do I hold thee but by thy granting,

And for that riches where is my deserving?

The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,

And so my patent back again is swerving.

Thyself thou gav'st, thy own worth then not knowing,

Or me, to whom thou gav'st it, else mistaking;

So thy great gift upon misprision growing,

Comes home again, on better judgement making.Thus have I had thee as a dream doth flatter,In sleep a king, but waking no such matter.

.: :.

The feminine ending gives a voice of sigh in a sense of melancholy -- (effaces himself).

.: sonnet 87 :.

Sonnet 87 has feminine line endings at almost every line. This may possibly indicate the feeling that the speaker doesn't want it to end. The alliteration used throughout makes it delievered with urgency. These two feelings almost work against each other, an extra syllable so it wont end but say it quickly which will make it end faster??? It is as if the speaker doesn't want it to end but can't handle the emotions and must say them quickly so that he appears okay with them.
