First Line: A lady gave me a gift she had not
Last Line: For I am fast sworn I may not.
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Subject(s): Gifts & Giving


A lady gave me a gift she had not
And I received her gift which I took not.
She gave it willingly, yet she would not;
And I received it, albeit I could not.
If she gave it me, I force not.
If she take again, she cares not.
Construe what is this and tell not,
For I am fast sworn I may not.
