BUCKINGHAM

Why, then All Souls Day is my bodys doomsday.
This is the day which, in King Edwards time,
I wished might fall on me when I was found
15 False to his children and his wifes allies.
This is the day wherein I wished to fall
By the false faith of him who most I trusted.
This, this All Souls Day to my fearful soul
Is the determined respite of my wrongs.
20 That high All-seer which I dallied with
Hath turned my feignd prayer on my head
And given in earnest what I begged in jest.
