Patience for my device,
Impatience for your part;
Of contraries the guise
Is ever the overthwart.
Patience, for I am true,
The contrary for you.

Patience, a good cause why
You have no cause at all;
Therefore you standeth awry,
Perchance sometime to fall;
Patience then take him up,
And drink of patience' cup.

Patience, no force for that,
But brush your gown again;
Patience, spurn not thereat;
Let no man know your pain;
Patience even at my pleasure,
When yours is out of measure.

Th' other was for me,
This patience is for you;
Change when ye list let see,
For I have taken anew;
Patience, with a good will,
Is easy to fulfill.
