Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 95), this poem was entered by H8. The poem also appears in Tottel’s Miscellany under the title “To his louer to loke vpon him” (item 90) (2010, 75). Wyatt’s epigram partially translates Serafino Aquilano’s strambotto “Viuo sol di mirarti.” An outline drawing of a left hand, held up with a thumb outstretched, appears in the margin. An unidentified hand has also entered the letters “a m a” on the page.
