Giovanni Francesco Caroto. Portrait of a Woman, c1510.
THE FANCY OF A WEARIED LOVER.
THE fancy, which that I have served long ;|
That hath alway been enemy to mine ease ;
Seemed of late to rue upon my wrong,
And bade me fly the cause of my misease.
And I forthwith did press out of the throng,
That thought by flight my painful heart to please
Some other way, till I saw faith more strong ;
And to myself I said, ' Alas ! those days
In vain were spent, to run the race so long.'
And with that thought I met my guide, that plain,
Out of the way wherein I wander'd wrong,
Brought me amidst the hills in base Bullayne :
Where I am now, as restless to remain
Against my will, full pleased with my pain.
