Madam, Withouten Many Words

Madam, Withouten Many Words

Madam, withouten many words
Once I am sure ye will or no…
And if ye will, then leave your bourds
And use your wit and show it so,
And with a beck ye shall me call;
And if of one that burneth alway
Ye have any pity at all,
Answer him fair with & {.} or nay.
If it be &, {.} I shall be fain;
If it be nay, friends as before;
Ye shall another man obtain,
And I mine own and yours no more.



Poem Madam, Withouten Many Words - Sir Thomas Wyatt
