The Heart and Service

Written by: Sir Thomas Wyatt | Biography
 | Quotes (3) |
 The heart and service to you proffer'd
With right good will full honestly,
Refuse it not, since it is offer'd,
But take it to you gentlely.
And though it be a small present, Yet good, consider graciously The thought, the mind, and the intent Of him that loves you faithfully.
It were a thing of small effect To work my woe thus cruelly, For my good will to be abject: Therefore accept it lovingly.
Pain or travel, to run or ride, I undertake it pleasantly; Bid ye me go, and straight I glide At your commandement humbly.
Pain or pleasure, now may you plant Even which it please you steadfastly; Do which you list, I shall not want To be your servant secretly.
And since so much I do desire To be your own assuredly, For all my service and my hire Reward your servant liberally.
