The Sonnet Project: Sonnet 62

Here is another sonnet for the Sonnet Project. This one was quite the tongue twister. There is extensive alliteration in this sonnet, especially “Sin of self-love possesseth” (1) and “Methinks no face so gracious is as mine, / No shape so true, no truth of such account,” (5-6). Any ways, enjoy!
