Poem by James Graham, 1st Marquise of Montrose


On Himself, Upon Hearing What Was His Sentence


Let them bestow on evry airth a limb;
Open all my veins, that I may swim
To Thee, my Saviour, in that crimson lake;
Then place my parboild head upon a stake,
Scatter my ashes, throw them in the air:
Lord (since Thou knowst where all these atoms are)
Im hopeful once Thoult recollect my dust,
And confident Thoult raise me with the just.
