Sir Walter Raleigh Live Poems

  • 1.
    Rise, O my soul! with thy desires to heaven,
    And with divinest contemplation use
    Thy time, when time's eternity is given,
    And let vain thoughts no more thy thoughts abuse;
    ...
  • 2.
    Give me my scallop shell of quiet,
    My staff of faith to walk upon,
    My scrip of joy, immortal diet,
    My bottle of salvation,
    ...
  • 3.
    When I am safely laid away,
    Out of work and out of play,
    Sheltered by the kindly ground
    From the world of sight and sound,
    ...

    Rise, O my soul, with thy desires to heaven,
    And with divinest contemplation use
    Thy time, where time's eternity is given ;
    And let vain thoughts no more thy thoughts abuse,
    ...

    If all the world and love were young,
    And truth in every Shepherdâ??s tongue,
    These pretty pleasures might me move,
    To live with thee, and be thy love.

    Go, Soul, the body's guest,
    Upon a thankless errand;
    Fear not to touch the best;
    The truth shall be thy warrant:

    These pretty pleasures might me move
    To live with thee and be thy Love.
