Commentary

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 229), this poem was entered by H8. In this humourous lyric, the female speaker believes that losing a lover put off by a small “nay” is trivial, and that shrinking lovers who complain lack wit because they do not face any real adversity. This short verse may be a comment on the poem above it, “Dyvers dothe vse as I have hard & kno” (77v).
