First Line: Hadd not pirythous to hell gone downe
Last Line: To shewe thy faulte, and trye me trusty still.
Alternate Author Name(s): Du Bellay, Joachim

Hadd not Pirythous to hell gone downe
the faithe of Theseus hadd byne unknowne
Nor Nisus by his ende hadd wonn renowne
hadd not Euryalus bynne overthrowne
The frindelye Pyllades hadd bynne concealde
hadd he nott lovede Orestes in his Rage
Nor Pythias fame so loude hadd bynn revealde
butt that for hym Damon dyd lyffe engage
Nor I false frynde hadd knowen thy fained hart
had fortune never bent her browes on mee
Butt for revenge off such thy vile desarte
I onely wishe that happie day to see
When I with good may recompence thy yll
To shewe thy faulte, and trye me trusty still.
