First Line: What thing is that that I both have and lack
Last Line: For that that was ready is new to begin?
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Subject(s): Loss


What thing is that that I both have and lack,
With goodwill granted and yet it is denied,
Always forward and yet full fair put back,
Ever more doing and yet unoccupied,
Most slow in that that I have most applied,
Whereby I see I lose all that I win,
For that that was ready is new to begin?
