Now must I learn to live at rest
And wean me of my will,
For I repent where I was prest
My fancy to fullfil.

I may no longer more endure
My wonted life to lead,
But I must learn to put in ure
The change of womanhed.

I may not se my service long
Rewarded in such wise,
Nor may I not sustain such wrong
That ye my love despise.

I may not sigh in sorrow deep,
Nor wail the want of love,
Nor I may nother crouch nor creep
Where it doth not behove.

But I of force must needs forsake
My faith so fondly set,
And from henceforth must undertake
Such folly to forget.

Not must I seek some other ways
Myself for to withsave,
And as I trust by mine essays
Some remedy to have.

I ask none other remedy
To recompence my wrong,
But once to have the liberty
That I have lak'd so long.
