HIS PRAYER FOR ABSOLUTION, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: For those my unbaptized rhymes
Last Line: The glory of my work, and me.
Subject(s): God; Poetry & Poets

For Those my unbaptized Rhimes,
Writ in my wild unhallowed Times;
For every sentence, clause and word,
That's not inlaid with Thee, (my Lord)
Forgive me God, and blot each Line
Out of my Book, that is not Thine.
But if, 'mongst all, thou find'st here one
Worthy thy Benediction;
That One of all the rest, shyall be
The Glory of my Work, and Me.
