Fear Not Dear Friend But Freely Live Your Days

 FEAR not, dear friend, but freely live your days
Though lesser lives should suffer.
Such am I, A lesser life, that what is his of sky Gladly would give for you, and what of praise.
Step, without trouble, down the sunlit ways.
We that have touched your raiment, are made whole From all the selfish cankers of man's soul, And we would see you happy, dear, or die.
Therefore be brave, and therefore, dear, be free; Try all things resolutely, till the best, Out of all lesser betters, you shall find; And we, who have learned greatness from you, we, Your lovers, with a still, contented mind, See you well anchored in some port of rest.
