In form sonnet 129 compares well with sonnet 37. Sonnet 129 uses enjambment a couple of times to connect an idea through multiple lines, sonnet 37 does the same. They also both make lists of characteristics to describe their subjects. Sonnet 129's list, "murderous, bloody, full of blame,/
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust;" punches the reader with each new descriptive word, pushing even farther the dark tone of the Sonnet and the painful, violent end of lust. Sonnet 37 also uses a list, but only lists seven words and they are broken up into three at a time instead of eight in one go, such as "So then I am not lame, poor, nor despised,". This gives sonnet 37 a softer feel which better fits the poems grateful, happy tone.
