Poem of the day
To Anthea, Who May Command Him Anything
by Robert Herrick
Bid me to live, and I will live
Thy Protestant to be;
Or bid me love, and I will give
A loving heart to thee.
A heart as soft, a heart as kind,
A heart as sound and free,
As in the whole world thou canst find,
Read complete poem
Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
