THE LOVER COMPARETH HIS HEART TO|
THE OVERCHARGED GUN.
HE furious gun in his most raging ire,|
When that the bowl is rammed in too,
And that the flame cannot part from the fire ;
Cracks in sunder, and in the air do roar
The shivered pieces. So doth my desire,
Whose flame increaseth aye from more to more ;
Which to let out, I dare not look, nor speak ;
So inward force my heart doth all to break.
Yeowell, James, Ed. The Poetical Works of Sir Thomas Wyatt.
London: George Bell and Sons, 1904. 171.
