Sonnet 48 explores the beloved as a possession thieves might pray upon while the poet is on a journey. A photographer (poet) must take a journey, and is packing all of his valuables away to guard against thieves. Though he has taken great care to protect his possessions, he cannot do the same for the one thing dearer to him than all others' his beloved. He cannot put the youth under lock and key while he is away, for he is free. But every passer by might be tempted by the youth's beauty to steal him away. His beauty is such that it would tempt even honest men to theft.
