Commentary

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 313-314), this poem was entered by H8. The speaker reasons that it would be folly to continue loving a lady who spurns him. The structure and rhyme scheme of the lyric suggests that a line might be missing between lines 30 and 31.
