Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
He biddeth farewell to his unkind Mistress
  SINCE so ye please to hear me plain,
And that ye do rejoice my smart;
Me list no longer to remain
To such as be so overthwart:
  But cursed be that cruel heart        5
Which hath procur’d a careless mind,
For me and mine unfeigned smart;
And forceth me such faults to find.
  More than too much I am assured
Of thine intent, whereto to trust;        10
A speedless proof I have endured;
And now I leave it to them that lust.
