Farewell Love and All Thy Laws Forever

Written by: Sir Thomas Wyatt | Biography
 | Quotes (3) |
 Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
In blind error when I did persever, Thy sharp repulse, that pricketh aye so sore, Hath taught me to set in trifles no store And scape forth, since liberty is lever.
Therefore farewell; go trouble younger hearts And in me claim no more authority.
With idle youth go use thy property And thereon spend thy many brittle darts, For hitherto though I have lost all my time, Me lusteth no lenger rotten boughs to climb.
