First Line: Unquiet thought! Whom at the first I bred
Last Line: If not, die soone, and I with thee will perish.
Alternate Author Name(s): Clout, Colin
Subject(s): Courtsdhip; Poetry & Poets

Unquiet thought, whom at the first I bred
Of th' inward bale of my love pined hart,
And sithens have with sighes and sorrowes fed,
Till greater then my wombe thou woxen art:
Breake forth at length out of the inner part,
In which thou lurkest lyke to vipers brood,
And seeke some succour, both to ease my smart
And also to sustayne thy selfe with food.
But if in presence of that fayrest proud
Thou chance to come, fall lowly at her feet;
And with meeke humblesse and afflicted mood
Pardon for thee, and grace for me intreat.
Which if she graunt, then live, and my love cherish,
If not, die soone, and I with thee will perish.
