Alternate Author Name(s): Wyat, Thomas
Subject(s): Death; Hell; Love; Pain; Dead, The; Suffering; Misery

My love is like unto th' eternal fire,
And I as those which therein do remain,
Whose grievous pains is but their great desire
To see the sight which they may not attain.
So in hell's heat myself I feel to be,
That am restrained by great extremity
The sight of her which is so dear to me.
O puissant love and power of great avail,
By whom hell may be felt or death assail!
