Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Songs and Epigrams
That speaking or proffering brings alway speeding
 
SPEAK thou and speed where will or power ought helpeth;
Where power doth want, will must be won by wealth:
For need will speed, where will works not his kind;
And gain thy foes thy friends shall cause thee find:
For suit and gold, what do not they obtain?        5
Of good and bad the tryers are these twain.
