Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind;
And that which governs me to go about
Doth part his function and is partly blind,
Seems seeing, but effectually is out;
For it no form delivers to the heart
Of bird, of flower, or shape which it doth latch:
Of his quick objects hath the mind no part,
Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch;
For if it see the rud'st or gentlest sight,
The most sweet favour or deformed'st creature,
The mountain or the sea, the day or night,
The crow, or dove, it shapes them to your feature.
Incapable of more, replete with you,
My most true mind thus maketh mine eye untrue.

Wow, I think this sonnet is spectacular.

I love "mine eye is in my mind"

Just saying it aloud is lovely as all of its sounds influence each other. It makes me think of the third eye.

And I also love how he describes his mind or a mind...and it is a sort of discussion with awareness, or consciousness. Plus....it is so true of being in love. Where ever we go when we are in love we think of that person we love....the beach and ocean is one of the places where if I go alone I am haunted by the people I love. They come to mind....and it can produce that overwhelming feeling of being small in nature....partly because I think of my loved ones when I am near the ocean....I feel like "my whole life flashes before my eyes" cliche when I am in overwhelming stunning nature...it's as if I'm not looking at nature anymore
