WYATT'S POETICAL WORKS.

SONGS AND SONNETS.

THE LOVER FOR SHAMEFASTNESS

HIDETH HIS DESIRE WITHIN HIS FAITHFUL HEART.

The long love that in my thought I harbour,
And in my heart doth keep his residence,
Into my face presseth with bold pretence,
And there campeth displaying his banner.
She that me learns to love and to suffer,
And wills that my trust, and lust's negligence
Be reined by reason, shame, and reverence,
With his hardiness takes displeasure.
Wherewith love to the heart's forest he fleeth,
Leaving his enterprise with pain and cry,
And there him hideth, and not appeareth.
What may I do, when my master feareth,

But in the field with him to live and die?
For good is the life, ending faithfully.

10

THE LOVER WAXETH WISER,

AND WILL NOT DIE FOR AFFECTION.
Yet was I never of your love aggrieved,
Nor never shall while that my life doth last;
But of hating myself, that date is past,

А

[ocr errors]

And tears continual sore have me wearied.
I will not yet in my grave be buried;
Nor on my tomb your name have fixed fast,
As cruel cause, that did the spirit soon haste
From th' unhappy bones, by great sighs stirred.
Then if an heart of amorous faith and will
Content your mind withouten doing grief;
Please it you so, to this to do relief:
If otherwise you seek for to fulfil

Your wrath, you err, and shall not as you ween;
And you yourself the cause thereof have been.

10

THE ABUSED LOVER SEETH HIS FOLLY,

AND INTENDETH TO TRUST NO MORE.

Was never file yet half so well yfiled,
To file a file for any smith's intent,
As I was made a filing instrument,
To frame other, while that I was beguiled:
But reason, lo, hath at my folly smiled,
And pardoned me, since that I me repent
Of
my
lost

years, and of my time misspent.
For youth led me, and falsehood me misguided.
Yet, this trust I have of great apparence,
Since that deceit is aye returnable,
Of very force it is agreeable,
That therewithal be done the recompense:

Then guile beguiled plained should be never;
And the reward is little trust for ever.
