[<< wikibooks] The Devonshire Manuscript/I am not ded altho I had a falle
== Commentary ==
Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt, this poem was entered by H8 and is a translation of Serafino Aquilano’s strambotto “Sio son caduto interra inon son morto.”  The speaker has fallen from favour, but hopes that Fortune will smile again on him (in love or political matters). The poem also appears in Tottel's Miscellany under the title “That louer hopeth of a better chance” (item 72).
