There had to be Shakespeare. Warmth sent me this play as a 'save the date' for a date at The Globe.
'You see me,... where I stand,
Such as I am. Though for myself alone

More rich, that only to stand in your account

Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays for evermore.'
