HIS CAVALIER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Give me that man, that dares bestride
Last Line: I! And a world of pikes passe through.
Subject(s): Freedom; Liberty

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 mid'st of all their outrages.
This, this a virtuous man can doe,
Saile against Rocks, and split them too;
I! and a world of Pikes passe through.
