Sir Walter Raleigh Live Poems

    Rise, O my soul! with thy desires to heaven,
    And with divinest contemplation use

    My staff of faith to walk upon,
    My scrip of joy, immortal diet,
    My bottle of salvation,
    ...

    From the world of sight and sound,

    To live with thee, and be thy love.

    Upon a thankless errand;
    Fear not to touch the best;
