First Line: Desire, alas, my master and my foe

Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Variant Title(s): Egerton Manuscript: 75
Subject(s): Desire; Enemies; Hate


Desire, alas, my master and my foe,
So sore altered thyself, how mayst thou see?
Sometime I sought that drives me to and fro;
Sometime thou leddst that leddeth thee and me.
What reason is to rule thy subjects so
By forced law and mutability?
For where by thee I doubted to have blame,
Even now by hate again I doubt the same.
