sithens in a net I seek to hold the wind

A sketch I did on the bus ride home from work - a love letter to my favorite poem by Sir Thomas Wyatt, "whoso list to hunt," written for his lover Anne Boleyn. 
All my favorite lines, this one being the line I love most:
"for Caesar's I am, and wild for to hold, though I seem tame."
