C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
A Description of Such a One as He would Love
By Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–1542)
 
A FACE that should content me wondrous well
  Should not be fair, but lovely to behold;
Of lively look, all grief for to repel;
  With right good grace, so would I that it should
Speak without word, such words as none can tell:        5
  Her tress also should be of crispèd gold;
With wit and these perchance I might be tried,
And knit again with knot that should not slide.
