Everlasting welthe with owte disconfeture
Lady souereyne princes most fortunate
In the cowrte of fame euermore to endure
Surmountinge in glory regestirde youre astate
After all lowly obeisauns Ordinate
By hande of trowthe withe seruyce unfenyd
Enterely I youre subiecte whiche promisid of late
Theis boke of youre grace I troste not disdenyd
Have me Recommendid with humbille subieccioun
And or your higthe [sic] bownte so pore a gifte to take
To you presentid of inwarde affectioun
I lowly beseke yow for youre suppleante sake
My promise obsauyd I troste that I did make
Which shulde have bene moche more illuynid with plesure
And if I had tyme whos ioie I undirtake
Welth everlastinge withe owghte disconfetur
