Take heed betime, lest ye be spied


Take heed betime lest ye be spied.
Your loving eyes ye cannot hide.
At last the truth will sure be tried.
Therefore take heed!

For some there be of crafty kind,
Though you show no part of your mind,
Surely their eyes ye cannot blind.
Therefore take heed!

For in like case theirselves hath been
And thought right sure none had them seen.
But it was not as they did ween.
Therefore take heed!

Although they be of diverse schools
And well can use all crafty tools,
At length they prove themselves but fools.
Therefore take heed!

If they might take you in that trap
They would soon leave it in your lap.
To love unspied is but a hap.
Therefore take heed!
