HENRY HOWARD, EARL OF SURREY
Jan Sanders Van Hemessen.
Woman Weighing Gold. mid-1520s?
COMPLAINT THAT HIS LADY
AFTER SHE KNEW HIS LOVE, KEPT HER FACE ALWAYS
HIDDEN FROM HIM.
1 A head dress, with a hood or veil attached to it.
I NEVER saw my Lady lay apart|
Her cornet1 black, in cold nor yet in heat,
Sith first she knew my grief was grown so great ;
Which other fancies driveth from my heart,
That to myself I do the thought reserve,
The which unawares did wound my woful breast ;
But on her face mine eyes might never rest.
Yet since she knew I did her love and serve,
Her golden tresses clad alway with black,
Her smiling looks that hid thus evermore,
And that restrains which I desire so sore.
So doth this cornet govern me alack !
In summer, sun, in winter's breath, a frost ;
Whereby the light of her fair looks I lost.
