[<< wikibooks] The Devonshire Manuscript/Who wold haue euer thowght
== Commentary ==
Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt, this poem was entered by H2. Using a chess metaphor to signify a courtly "game of love" (lines 14 and 16), the speaker denotes his or her displeasure at receiving the affections of a lover. Rebholz notes that lines 17-18 suggest that the poem's recollection will remind the speaker to choose a better love next time.
