Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
 
Rondeaux
He determineth to cease to Love
 
FOR to love her for her looks lovely,
My heart was set in thought right firmly,
Trusting by truth to have had redress;
But she hath made another promess,
And hath given me leave full honestly.        5
Yet do I not rejoice it greatly;
For on my faith I loved too surely,
But reason will that I do cesse,
          For to love her.
Since (that in love the pains been deadly),        10
Methink it best that readily
I do return to my first address;
For at this time too great is the press,
And perils appear too abundantly,
          For to love her.        15
