Farewell Love - a poem by Thomas Wyatt

Biography, poetry and picture Sir Thomas Wyatt

 

Farewell

, Love, and all thy laws for ever: 
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more. 
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore, 
To perfect wealth my wit for to endeavour. 
In blind error when I did persever, 
Thy sharp repulse, that pricketh aye so sore, 
Hath taught me to set in trifles no store, 
And scape forth, since liberty is lever*. [desirable] 
Therefore farewell, go trouble younger hearts, 
And in me claim no more authority; 
With idle youth go use thy property, 
And thereon spend thy many brittle darts. 
For, hitherto though I've lost my time, 
Me lusteth no longer rotten boughs to climb.
