Commentary

8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 273-274), this poem was entered by H6 and is unique to this manuscript. The repeated phrase “fforget not yet” denotes the speaker’s request to the lady to remember his past service and his steadfastness in the face of her disdain.
