Forget Not Yet  
a poem by Thomas Wyatt

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 knew, 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 denays 
Forget not yet.

Forget not yet, forget not this, 
How long ago hath been, and is, 
The mind that never means amiss; 
Forget not yet.

Forget not yet thine own approved, 
The which so long hath thee so loved, 
Whose steadfast faith yet never moved, 
Forget not this.
