The double U, is dowble woe
The I, is nought but ielosie
The F, is fawninge flatterie
The E is nought but enmitie.
Thus U w[th] I, w[th] f, w[th] E:
Brings nothinge els but miserie.

Is double U such double woe
Speake of no more then that you knowe.
Tis weale, tis wealth, and nothing soe.
I, Joye is, not iealosie.
F favor is, not flattery.
E is true loves eternytie.
Thus, U, w[th] I, w[th] F, w[th] E
well consterd is felicitie.
