Qov argued​ that Sonnet 116 was the poem that Okrand translated:

I'm not 100% sure I follow the train of logic there, but maybe Qov is more
familiar with MO's style. However, the provided back-translation of Sonnet
116 seems to fit more with MO's style of writing back-translations, based
on examples like the one he did for the Warrior's Anthem. (For instance, MO
uses more punctuation. The King John back-translation lacks sentence-final
punctuation, but both the Warrior's Anthem and Sonnet 116 back-translations
use it regularly.) So I'm inclined to agree with Qov's assessment that it's
by MO.
