Quotation by Sir Thomas Wyatt

Blame but thyself that hast misdone,
And well deserved to have blame;
Change thou thy way so evil begun,
And then my lute shall sound that same:
But if till then my fingers play
By thy desert their wonted way,
Blame not my lute.
Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542), British poet. Blame not my lute for he must sound (l. 29–35). . .
