Shakespeare’s Sonnet Generator

When I perhaps compounded am with clay
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white
For, thou betraying me, I do betray
And moan th’ expense of many a vanish’d sight
Love’s eye is not so true as all men’s: no
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
Receiving naught by elements so slow
Making his style admired everywhere
Past reasons hated, as a swallow’d bait
Without all ornament, itself and true
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate
Robbing no old to dress his beauty new
        Let not my love be call’d idolatry
        If ten of thine ten times refigur’d thee
