Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Songs and Epigrams
Of his Love that pricked her Finger with a Needle
 
SHE sat, and sewed, that hath done me the wrong;
Whereof I plain, and have done many a day:
And, whilst she heard my plaint, in piteous song
She wish’d my heart the sampler, that it lay.
The blind master, whom I have served so long,        5
Grudging to hear that he did hear her say,
  Made her own weapon do her finger bleed,
  To feel if pricking were so good indeed.
