O foolish soul! to make thy count
By Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
O FOOLISH soul! to make thy count
  For languid falls and much forgiven,
When like a flame thou mightest mount
  To storm and carry heaven.
A life so faint,—is this to live?        5
  A goal so mean,—is this a goal?
Christ love thee, remedy, forgive,
  Save thee, O foolish soul.
