Fear No More

Poem By William Shakespeare

Fear no more the heat o' the sun;
Nor the furious winter's rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant's stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan;
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust.

No exorciser harm thee!
Nor no witchcraft charm thee!
Ghost unlaid forbear thee!
Nothing ill come near thee!
Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave!

He one of the famous poet and I loved the poem
William Shakespeare is one of the best poem writers there is around and I like his poems to
If he were alive, He would surely compose more of this kind!
Every time I read and remember this poem exists, it strikes me with more and more exquisite meaning. A poem that frees one's mood from an acknowledgement of one's current circumstance.
GEts more and more magnificent every time I read it, hear it, remember that it is.
