Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42). The Poetical Works. 1880.


He professeth Indifference

HATE whom ye list, for I care not;

Love whom ye list, and spare not;

Do what ye list, and dread not;

Think what ye list, I fear not;

For as for me I am not;

But even as one that recks not,

Whether ye hate or hate not,

For in your love I dote not;

Wherefore I pray you forget not;

But love whom ye list, for I care not.
