Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Songs and Epigrams
Of sudden trusting
 
DRIVEN by desire I did this deed,
To danger myself without cause why,
To trust the untrue not like to speed,
To speak and promise faithfully:
But now the proof doth verify,        5
  That whoso trusteth ere he know,
  Doth hurt himself and please his foe.
