Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
Songs and Epigrams
To his Love whom he had kissed against her Will
ALAS, Madam, for stealing of a kiss,
Have I so much your mind therein offended?
Or have I done so grievously amiss,
That by no means it may not be amended?
Revenge you then: the readiest way is this;        5
Another kiss, my life it shall have ended;
  For to my mouth the first my heart did suck;
  The next shall clean out of my breast it pluck.
