A POEM BY SIR GEORGE BLAGE (1546)

A voyce i haue and yk a will to wayle
and fro my yes salt teers adoun doo rounne

my brethe it feintes, my hart I feel it domme
yff I dye not while that these wourdes I speke
what so I sey to simpel shawl apeyr
the Cawse so gret the pleynt alas so week
but since I seke that dethe douthe draw me neer
i shaul me hast the worlde at leest may knowe
the cawse whi i thes wofull noys(es) make
and leue them all in tourment payne and wo
wyshinge them prei this vengeance wons may shake.
In quiet rest as wordly wrechis myght
voyd of mallis, of rancor, or debate
to teche or lerne nothinge but whiche was ryght
obeinge powers contented wythe our stat
the duti due to prinsis for to gyue

this was our mind this trad we touk to lyue
this wey to plees bothe god and kynge we thought
by feynid feythe so that nothinge weer doone
for that doth greiue the Lord whiche we doo sarue
softly to go the race he bad us roone
and bi no menes out of that pathe to swarue

to heer them speek belyue whiche they did sey
so that of theers and his weer of acord
but other wyse alas now hathe it hapt
our gides haue erd and walkd out of the wey
and we bi them full crafftely ar trapt
whom thei swold lede they driue out of arey,
the liueinge wourd the bred of lyffe from us
bi mite hande extortid haue thees men
feinynge as tho yt weer food dangerus
