Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Subject(s): Despair; Life


For shamefast harm of great and hateful need,
In deep despair, as did a wretch go
With ready cord out of his life to speed,
His stumbling foot did find an hoard, lo,
Of gold, I say, where he prepared this deed,
And in exchange, he left the cord tho.
He that had hid the gold and found it not,
Of that he found he shaped his neck a knot.
