Commentary[edit]

Entered by H2, this poem is an excerpt from Sir Thomas Wyatt's poem “Heaven and earth and all that hear me plain.”[1] Like the previous poem, this poem also features a description of a cruel, unrelenting woman.

This poem and the one on the facing page "May not thys hate from the estarte" (10v) appear to be imitative repetitions of each other.
