To complayne me, alas, why shulde I so?
For my complaynts it did me nevir good;
But be constraynt, now must I shew my woo
To her only which is myn yës fode,
Trustyng sum thyme that she will chaunge her mode
And lett me not allway be guerdonless,
Suth for my trouth she needith no wittness.

[Mine eyes' food]
