You That In Love Find Luck And Abundance
by Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503-1542)
You that in love find luck and abundance
And live in lust and joyful jollity,
Arise, for shame! Do away your sluggardy!
Arise, I say, do May some observance!
Let me in bed lie dreaming in mischance;
Let me remember the haps most unhappy
That me betide in May most commonly,
As one whom Love list little to advance.
Sephame said true that my nativity
Mischanced was with the ruler of the May.
He guessed, I prove of that the verity.
In May, my wealth, and eke my life I say
Have stonde so oft in such perplexity.
Rejoice! Let me dream of your felicity.
