    Rave on John Donne, rave on thy holy fool
    Down through the weeks of ages
    In the moss borne dark dank pools

    Rave on, down through the industrial revolution
    Empiricism, atomic and nuclear age
    Rave on, down through time and space, down through the corridors
    Rave on words on printed page

    Rave on, you left us infinity
    And well pressed pages torn to fade
    Drive on with wild abandon
    Uptempo, frenzied heels

    Rave on, Walt Whitman, nose down in wet grass
    Rave on fill the senses
    On nature’s bright green shady path

    Rave on Omar Khayyam, rave on Kahlil Gibran
    Oh, what sweet wine we drinketh
    The celebration will be held
    We will partake the wine and break the holy bread

    Rave on let a man come out of Ireland
    Rave on on Mr. Yeats,
    Rave on down through the holy rosey cross
    Rave on down through theosophy, and the golden dawn
    Rave on through the writing of "a vision"
    Rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on

    Rave on John Donne, rave on thy holy fool
    Down through the weeks of ages
    In the moss borne dark dank pools

    Van Morrison
