May Not Thys Hate from the Estarte by Anthony Lee

May not thys hate from the estarte
but fermly for to sytte
that undeservyd cruell harte
when shall yt change not yet not yett

yowre changyng mynd & feynyd chere
with yowre love whyche was so knytte
how hyt hathe turnyd yt dothe apere
when shall yt change not yet not yet

Hathe changyng suche power for to Remove
& clene owte for to shytte
sso fervent heate & hasty love
when shall yt change not yet not yet

Syns I am leste What Remedy
I marvell never a Whytte
I am not the fyrst perdy
nor shall not be the last not yet

Now syns yor wyll so waveryng
to hate hathe turnyd yor wytte
example as good as wrytyng
hyt wyll not be not yett.
