Sir Thomas Wyatt Quotes

    My Lute Awake

    My lute awake! perform the last
    Labour that thou and I shall waste,
    And end that I have now begun;
    For when this song is sung and past,
    My lute be still, for I have done.

    As to be heard where ear is none,
    As lead to grave in marble stone,
    My song may pierce her heart as soon;
