First Line: Of purpose love chose first for to be blind
Last Line: With such as see I serve and suffer woe.
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Variant Title(s): Egerton Manuscript: 100
Subject(s): Love


Of purpose love chose first for to be blind,
For he with sight of that that I behold
Vanquished had been against all godly kind;
His bow your hand and truss should have unfold,
And he with me to serve had been assigned.
But, for he blind and reckless would him hold,
And still by chance his deadly strokes bestow,
With such as see I serve and suffer woe.
