Hear me a little,

Hear me a little,
For I have only silent been so long,Hyperbaton
And given way unto this course of fortune,
By noting of the lady. I have marked
A thousand blushing apparitions
To start into her face, a thousand innocent shames
In angel whiteness beat away those blushes,Anaphora

And in her eye there hath appeared a fire
To burn the errors that these princes hold
Against her maiden truth.Metaphor Call me a fool,
Trust not my reading, nor my observations,
Which with experimental seal doth warrant
The tenure of my book; trust not my age,
My reverence, calling, nor divinity,Parallelism

If this sweet lady lie not guiltless hereAlliteration
Under some biting error.
