The Tudors' poem : These bloody days have broken my heart.

This is a scene from the historical drama The Tudors, where the four men
who are falsely accussed of having carnal knowledge of the Queen Anne
Boleyn are excecuted. Thomas Wyatt is also arrested but would be latter released, he reads this poem watching the executions :

These bloody days have broken my heart,
My lust, my youth did them depart.
For your wit alone many men would bemoan,
And since it is so, many still cry aloud.
It is a great loss that you are dead and gone,
A time you had above your poor degree,
Before whereof your friends may well bemoan,
A rotten twig upon so high a tree has slipped your hold
And you are dead and gone.
These bloody days have broken my heart,
My lust, my youth did them depart.
And blind desire of ambitious souls,
Who haste to climb seeks to revert and about the throne
The thunder rolls.

I must say that i'm quite pissed they distort the original poem,
