Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
Sir T. Wyatt
XXI. A Supplication
FORGET not yet the tried intent 
Of such a truth as I have meant; 
My great travail so gladly spent, 
                  Forget not yet! 
Forget not yet when first began         5
The weary life ye know, since whan 
The suit, the service none tell can; 
                  Forget not yet! 
Forget not yet the great assays, 
The cruel wrong, the scornful ways,  10
The painful patience in delays, 
                  Forget not yet! 
Forget not! O, forget not this 
How long ago hath been, and is 
The mind that never meant amiss—  15
                  Forget not yet! 
Forget not then thine own approved 
The which so long hath thee so loved, 
Whose steadfast faith yet never moved— 
                  Forget not this!  20
