Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
Songs and Epigrams
A description of such a one as he would love
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 crisped gold;
  With wit, and these perchance I might be tried,
  And knit again with knot, that should not slide.
