First Line: Alas, madam, for stealing of a kiss
Last Line: The next shall clean out of my breast it pluck.
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Variant Title(s): Egerton Manuscript: 44
Subject(s): Hearts; Kisses; Life


Alas, madam, for stealing of a kiss,
Have I so much your mind then offended?
Have I then done so grievously amiss,
That by no means it may be amended?
Then revenge you, and the next way is this:
Another kiss shall have my life ended.
For to my mouth the first my heart did suck,
The next shall clean out of my breast it pluck.
