Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Odes
An earnest Suit to his unkind Mistress not to forsake him
 
  AND wilt thou leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay! for shame!
To save thee from the blame
Of all my grief and grame.
And wilt thou leave me thus?        5
Say nay! say nay!
  And wilt thou leave me thus?
That hath lov’d thee so long?
In wealth and woe among:
And is thy heart so strong        10
As for to leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
  And wilt thou leave me thus?
That hath given thee my heart
Never for to depart;        15
Neither for pain nor smart:
And wilt thou leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
  And wilt thou leave me thus,
And have no more pity,        20
Of him that loveth thee?
Alas! thy cruelty!
And wilt thou leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
