Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
Songs and Epigrams
The Lover hopeth of better Chance
HE is not dead, that sometime had a fall,
The sun returns, that hid was under cloud,
And when fortune hath spit out all her gall,
I trust, good luck to me shall be allowed:
For I have seen a ship in haven fall,        5
After that storm hath broke both mast and shroud:
  The willow eke, that stoopeth with the wind,
  Doth rise again, and greater wood doth bind.
