Item #238138

Written by Robert Herrick, The Cavalier Poet.

His Cavalier

Give me that man, that dares bestride

The active sea-horse & with pride,

Through that huge field of waters ride:

Who, with his looks too, can appease

The ruffling winds and raging seas,

In the midst of all their outrages.

This a virtuous man can do,

Sail against rocks, and split them too:

Ay! and a world of pikes pass through.

--Sir Robert Herrick--.
