    'Noli me tangere quia Caesaris sum' ('Touch me not, for I am Caesar's') was inscribed on the collars of Caesar's hinds, which were then set free and were presumably safe from hunters.

    Also the word 'worried' in lines 3 & 5 is incorrect - it should be 'wearied'. (Report) Reply

    Wyatt based his poem on Petrarch's Sonnet 190. The similarity is remarkable, but so is the slight change of 'form.' Wyatt was probably expressing his feelings on the loss of Anne Boleyn, believed to be his mistress, to Henry VIII. (Report) Reply

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
