f.13v

My hert I gave the not to do it payn
but to preserue it was to the taken
I serued the not to be forsaken
but that I should be rewarded again
5I was content thy serunt to remayn
but not to be payed vnder this fasshion
nowe syns in the is none othee reason
displease the not if that I do refrain
vnsaciat of my woo and thy desire
10assured be craft to excuse thy fault
but syns it please thy to fain a default
farewell I say parting from the fyer
for he that beleveth bering in hand
[] weth in the sand
