Sonnet XLIII

I have worked out how best to edition Sonnet XLIII. The idea for it was first formed in response to looking at the Tudor painted ceiling in Thame's new museum and drawing it as part of The Big Draw in October last year.

Shakespeare's words when most I wink then do mine eyes best see describe an aspect of drawing while the intricate painted pattern on the ceiling is like a visual equivalent of the language of the sonnet.
