Sonnet Xlv

When to tell the truth
As important as what's right
Things to show in shadow,
And what in light.
In the proud heart;
Secrecy politic and moral.
Going softly in life's art...
A man's face shows to the world,
The best composition...
Open in outline,
Secrecy in transition,
And seasoned use and time.
When opinion becomes lies,
Truth becomes lies.
