    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.
