III. Oblivion
By William Drummond of Hawthornden (1585–1649)
  I FEAR not henceforth death,
  Sith after this departure yet I breathe;
Let rocks, and seas, and wind,
Their highest treasons show;
Let sky and earth combin’d        5
Strive, if they can, to end my life and woe;
Sith grief can not, me nothing can o’erthrow:
  Or if that aught can cause my fatal lot,
  It will be when I hear I am forgot.
