Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Songs and Epigrams
Of disappointed Purpose by Negligence
 
OF Carthage he that worthy warrior
Could overcome, but could not use his chance;
And I likewise of all my long endeavour
The sharp conquest though fortune did advance,
Ne could I use. The hold that is given over        5
I unpossess, so hangeth now in balance
  Of war my peace, reward of all my pain,
  At Mountzon thus I restless rest in Spain.
