‘When he saw the wind boisterous’

Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)

‘When he saw the wind boisterous he was afraid,’ etc.—MATT. XIV.

PETER! doubt, and thou sinkest! O believe;

The sea will not thy faith, Peter, deceive.

Things by their weight subside into the wave;

Thy lightness, Peter, threats a wat’ry grave.
