Abide and Abide and Better Abide

Written by: Sir Thomas Wyatt | Biography
 | Quotes (3) |
 I abide and abide and better abide,
And after the old proverb, the happy day;
And ever my lady to me doth say,
"Let me alone and I will provide.
" I abide and abide and tarry the tide, And with abiding speed well ye may.
Thus do I abide I wot alway, Nother obtaining nor yet denied.
Ay me! this long abiding Seemeth to me, as who sayeth, A prolonging of a dying death, Or a refusing of a desir'd thing.
Much were it better for to be plain Than to say "abide" and yet shall not obtain.
