Forget not yet the tried intent

Language: English

Forget not yet the tried intent
Of such a truth as I have meant;
My great travail so gladly spent,
         Forget not yet!
Forget not yet when first began
The weary life ye know, since whan
The suit, the service none tell can;
         Forget not yet!
Forget not yet the great assays,
The cruel wrongs, the scornful ways,
The painful patience in delays,
         Forget not yet!
Forget not! oh! forget not this;
How long ago hath been, and is
The mind that never meant amiss
         Forget not yet!
Forget not then thine own approv'd,
The which so long hath thee so lov'd,
Whose steadfast faith yet never mov'd:
         Forget not this!
