British Library Additional MS 17492 (Devonshire MS), fol. 54v; cf. Collected Poems, ed. Kenneth Muir and Patricia Thomson (Liverpool University Press, 1969), facsimile in illustration 6, opposite p. 212.
4 Forget not yet.
5 Forget not yet when first began
6The weary life ye know, since whan
7The suit, the service, none tell can;
8 Forget not yet.
10The cruel wrong, the scornful ways;
12 Forget not yet.
13 Forget not yet, forget not this,
14How long ago hath been and is
15The mind that never meant amiss;
16 Forget not yet.
18The which so long hath thee so loved,
19Whose steadfast faith yet never moved;
20 Forget not this.
