The Lively Sparks by Thomas Wyatt

THE lively sparks that issue from those eyes, 
   Against the which there vaileth no 
Have pierced my heart, and done it none offence, 
With quaking pleasure more than once or twice. 
Was never man could any thing devise, 
Sunbeams to turn with so great vehemence 
To daze man's sight, as by their bright presence 
Dazed am I ; much like unto the guise 
Of one stricken with dint of lightning, 
Blind with the stroke, and cying here and there : 
So call I for help, I not when nor where, 
The pain of my fall patiently bearing : 
    For straight after the blaze, as is no wonder,
    Of deadly noise hear I the fearful thunder.
