Vol. I. Early Poetry: Chaucer to Donne
 
Verses Found in His Bible in the Gate-House at Westminster
By Sir Walter Raleigh (1554?–1618)
 
EVEN such is time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
Who, in the dark and silent grave,
When we have wandered all our ways,        5
Shuts up the story of our days;
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust!
