   English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
37. The Lover’s Appeal
 
Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503(?)–1542)
 
 
AND wilt thou leave me thus!
Say nay! say nay! for shame!
To save thee from the blame
Of all my grief and grame.
And wilt thou leave me thus?        5
Say nay! say nay!
 
And wilt thou leave me thus,
That hath loved thee so long
In wealth and woe among:
And is thy heart so strong        10
As for to leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
 
And wilt thou leave me thus,
That hath given thee my heart
Never for to depart        15
Neither for pain nor smart:
And wilt thou leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
 
And wilt thou leave me thus,
And have no more pity        20
Of him that loveth thee?
Alas! thy cruelty!
And wilt thou leave me thus?
Say nay! say nay!
