I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

I think that the last two lines are different to force the reader to interpret the conclusion's meaning?

Would you agree with that?

    Well, yes. The next-to-last line is part of the same thought as the last line. One cannot stand or make sense without the other.
