Commentary

15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 314-316), this poem was entered by H8. The speaker complains that he truly loves his beloved, but he tries to exercise reason in order to withdraw himself from his miserable situation. H8 separates lines 3, 6, and 9 into two graphical lines to maintain the column width established by the poem above, “Wythe seruing still” (81r). H8 enters the rest of the poem beside this column and on the next page, and keeps the poetic lines intact. An annotation (“lerne but to syng yt”), written in the hand of Margaret Douglas, appears above the poem. Remley links this annotation to “now all of chaunge,” but it may be a comment on the lyric above, “Wythe seruing still” (81r). Remley adds that “Now all of change” has a musical setting and suggests that the seventeen entries reading “and thys” may be linked to this annotation. These seventeen entries and this annotation may indicate a group of texts to be learned for entertaining (Remley 1994, 50). In the Arundel-Harington manuscript, the scribe enters “To Smith of Camden,” which Rebholz suggests is the name of an Elizabethan broadside ballad tune that could be used as the melody for this lyric (1978, 537).
