4387 In prisoun though thi body be,
4388 At large kepe thyne herte free.
4389 A trewe herte wole not plie
4390 ffor no manace that it may drye.
4391 If Ielousie doth thee payne,
4392 Quyte hym his while thus Agayne,
4393 To venge thee, atte leest in thought,
4394 If other way thou maist nought;
4395 And in this wise sotilly
4396 Worche, and wynne the maistrie.
4397 But yit I am in gret Affray
4398 Lest thou do not as I say;
4399 I drede thou canst me gret maugre,
4400 That thou emprisoned art for me;
4401 But that not for my trespas,
4402 ffor thurgh me never discovred was
4403 Yit thyng that ought be secree.
4404 Wel more anoy is in me,
4405 Than is in thee, of this myschaunce;
4406 ffor I endure more harde penaunce
4407 Than ony can seyn or thynke,
4408 That for the sorwe almost I synke.
4409 Whanne I remembre me of my woo,
4410 ffull nygh out of my witt I goo.
