Sunday Sonnet

Thomas Wyatt wrote this about Anne Boleyn, whom he knew from early childhood & loved.  Although he was accused of being one of her lovers, he escaped the executioner.  He died of a fever of 1542 at the age of thirty-nine.  This sonnet is scanned from the book, The Art of the Sonnet, edited by Stephen Burt & David Mikics.  It’s one of my favorite poetry books.
