Fear No More The Heat O’ The Sun
(Sympathy Poems – Funeral Poems)

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 o’ 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-dreaded thunder-stone ..
Fear not slander, censure rash
Thou hast finish’d joy and moan.

All lovers young
all lovers must ..
Consign to thee
and come to dust.

– William Shakespeare
