The poem composed by Thomas Wyatt while he is imprisoned in The Tower, is an adaptation of the third stanza of his poem with the latin title Innocentia Veritas Viat Fides Circumdederunt me inimici mei, which in itself is an adaptation of Psalm 16, verse 9: "My enemies surround my soul".
The original stanza reads as follow:
These bloody days have broken my heart.
My lust, my youth did them depart,
And blind desire of estate.
Who hastes to climb seeks to revert.
Of truth, circa Regna tonat.
