Who hath heard of such cruelty before?
That when my plaint remembered her my woe
That caused it, she, cruel more and more
Wished each stitch, as she did sit and sew,
Had pricked mine heart, for to increase my sore;
And, as I think, she thought it had been so,
For as she thought, "This is his heart indeed,"
She pricked hard and made herself to bleed.
