Commentary

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Written in the hand of Margaret Douglas, this poem remains unattributed. The poem may describe the topical issue of her love for Thomas Howard. Lines 7-8, for instance, assert her defiance: “ffor me I dare a woo/ to do agen as I hawe done.” Notably, “my hart ys sent not remove” (58v) and “wan I be thyng my wontyd was” (59r), also entered by Margaret Douglas, seem to relate to the plight of her relationship with Thomas Howard: either they show her defiance (e.g. “My hart ys set not remove” and “O myserable sorow withowten cure”) or they show support to the couple (e.g. “When I bethynk my wontet ways”).
