Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Songs and Epigrams
The Lover blameth his instant Desire
 
DESIRE, alas, my master and my foe,
So sore alter’d thyself, how mayst thou see?
Sometime thou seekest, and drives me to and fro;
Sometime thou lead’st, that leadeth thee and me.
What reason is to rule thy subject so,        5
By forced law, and mutability?
  For where by thee I doubted to have blame,
  Even now by hate again I doubt the same.
