First Line: Driven by desire I did this deed
Last Line: Doth hurt himself and please his foe.
Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Subject(s): Desire


Driven by desire I did this deed,
To danger myself without cause why,
To trust the untrue, not like to speed,
To speak and promise faithfully;
But now the proof doth verify
That who so trusteth ere he know
Doth hurt himself and please his foe.
