Notes & Glosses

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 1. It is possible that an e is indicated after “for.”
2. This phrase resonates. See “Sum tyme I syghe sumtyme I syng” (20v).
3. One possibility is that the author is “sair,” as in “sayer,” a person who says, but Harrier argues that it may read “58i3,” a code for Wiat (1975, 148).

Commentary

11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 175), this poem was entered by H3. Rebholz observes that this poem may be an expansion of a popular song: a slightly different version of the first three stanzas appears in Henry VIII’s song-book (Muir and Thomson 1969, 309), and Feste sings another version of the poem in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (IV, 2, 78-9) (Rebholz 1978, 432). H10 enters a seven-line excerpt of the poem on 22v. This poem is also one of the seventeen entries where Margaret Douglas marks: “and thys” (see the Commentaryon “At last withdrawe yowre cruellte” (04r-04v)).
