Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
That Unkindness hath slain his poor true Heart
  IF in the world there be more woe
Than I have in my heart;
Whereso it is, it doth come fro’,
And in my breast there doth it grow,
For to increase my smart.        5
Alas! I am receipt of every care;
And of my life each sorrow claims his part.
Who list to live in quietness
By me let him beware.
For I by high disdain        10
Am made without redress;
And unkindness, alas! hath slain
My poor true heart, all comfortless.
