Whoso list to hunt, I know where is an hind,
But as for me, alas, I may no more;
The vain travail hath wearied me so sore,
I am of them that furthest come behind.
Yet may I by no means my wearied mind
Draw from the deer, but as she fleeth afore
Fainting I follow; I leave off therefore,
Since in a net I seek to hold the wind.
Who list her hunt, I put him out of doubt,
As well as I, may spend his time in vain.
And graven with diamonds in letters plain,
There is written her fair neck round about,
"Noli me tangere, for Caesar's I am,
And wild for to hold, though I seem tame."
. . . . . .Thomas Wyatt

Anne Boleyn... a name that haunts English history to this day.

Henry VIII wrote to her:

I and my heart put ourselves in your hands, begging you to have them suitors for your good favour, and that your affection for them should not grow less through absence

and turned his kingdom upside down to marry her. Anne's eyes were black and beautiful - and take great effect So much so that when she failed of giving Henry a son, he cried out that she had witched me! with the same eyes whose beauty he had once sung. Accused of sorcery, incest and adultery, Anne was beheaded by the King who had raised her to the throne of England.

What say you, Friend, as to whether or not Anne the Queen was also Anne the Witch? Or was she Anne the Fool to believe that she could control a man so fickle as Henry VIII? There were those who said she had a sixth finger and a mole upon her neck. to mark her as the property of Satan. A daughter both happy and healthy did she bear to Henry--Elizabeth, who alone of his children ruled long and well. But no sons. Would not a witch have insured a boy child? Many sons all whole and strong? One would think she would.

And what can be said of a King who sails merrily down the Thames to meet his sweet Jayne while the Queen his wife breathes still? Was Anne the witch? Or Jayne?
