You would have to either put your link html directly in the content, like so:

    - type: Block
      tag: p
      content_xml: '<a href="__uri_for(/lost-passwd)__">Lost Password</a>'

or, create the a tag with a Block:

    - type: Block
      tag: a
      content: "Lost Password"
        - href: __uri_for(/lost-password)__

However, I've only used formfu's block elements to create markup in
quick-n-dirty scripts - it's more "MVC" to put the link directly into
your template file that contains the form.
