Subject:        Sonnet Suggestion for Analysis

Dear SHAKSPERians,

For a linguistic class, I am investigating the shifts in meaning of
words during the Renaissance.  I would like to demonstrate the
implications of these phenomena by analyzing a poem or two.  I thought
one of Shakespeare's sonnets would be ideal.  Does anyone have a
suggestion for a particular sonnet that might lend itself to this kind
of linguistic analysis?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
