A Lover's Complaint, Edward de Vere and Anne Cecil

A Lover's Complaint talks about the story of Edward de Vere and Anne Cecil. The beginning and the end are ideal places to seal anagrams.
From off a hill whose concave womb reworded, [1]
A plaintful story from a sistering vale [2]
My spirits t’attend this double voice accorded, [3]
. . .
Would yet again betray the fore-betrayed,
And new pervert a reconciled Maid. [329]
[1] Two names being reworded.

[2] Sistering of Anne Cecil and Mary Sidney.
[3] Mary Sidney's spirit making this double voice.

. . .
[329] Edward de Vere the pervert, and Anne Cecil the reconciled,
       A summary wonderfully made.

A Complaint of Anne Cecil the lover. This is her story.
