Sonnet 30
When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unus'd to flow,
For precious friends hid in death's dateless night,
And weep afresh love's long since cancell'd woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanish'd sight:
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restor'd and sorrows end.

And
with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then
can I drown an eye, unus'd to flow,
For precious friends hid in death's dateless night,
And
weep afresh love's long since cancell'd woe,
And
moan the expense of many a vanish'd sight:
Then
can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And
heavily from woe to woe tell o'er"

Theme & Tone continued
Ex. from the poem: “But if I think of you while I am in this state of sadness, dear friend, All my losses are compensated for and my sorrow ends.”
