Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 87), this poem was entered by H8. The speaker renounces love and tells it to go trouble younger hearts. The grafted and rotten bough image is a common image in courtly lyrics. For other examples of this image in the manuscript, see “Yff reason govern fantasye” (45r), “This rotyd greff will not but growe” (47v), and “Tanglid I was yn loves snare” (79v-80r). The poem also appears in Tottel’s Miscellany under the title “A renouncing of loue” (item 99) (2010, 80).
