If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less. As well as if a promontory were. As well as if a manor of thy friend's Or of thine own were: Any man's death diminishes me, Because I am involved in mankind, And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then? But sucked on country pleasures, childishly? Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers' den? 'Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be. If ever any beauty I did see, Which I desired, and got, 'twas but a dream of thee. And now good-morrow to our waking souls, Which watch not one another out of fear; For love, all love of other sights controls, And makes one little room an everywhere. Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone, Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown, Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one. My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears, And true plain hearts do in the faces rest; Where can we find two better hemispheres, Without sharp north, without declining west? Wha...

Death, Be Not Proud - A poem by John Donne. About the poem - "Death Be Not Proud" is a poem by English metaphysical poet John Donne, written around 1610 and first published posthumously in 1633. It is the tenth sonnet of Donne's posthumously published Holy Sonnets. The poem is addressed to Death, telling him not to be proud, because death is not to be feared. The poem explains because sleep is a type of death, and that it is pleasurable, then death must be even more so; that death is a slave to fate, chance (accidental death), kings (who have the power of life and death, such as the ability to levy war and command executions), and desperate men. The theme of the poem is generally describing about mortality. The sonnet has an ABBA ABBA CDDC EE rhyming scheme, emblematic of an enclosed rhy...

These features, along with his frequent dramatic or everyday speech rhythms, his tense syntax and his tough eloquence, were both a...
This is a poem about jealousy and fidelity. Let me offer a theory: that jealousy is differently motivated in men and women: that male jealousy is inherently different from female jealousy. Jealousy is in our DNA because serves an evolutionary purpose. A man was jealous because he feared that his woman might carry a child that was not his. A woman was jealous because she feared that the man would not stay and provide for her throughout pregnancy. Thus men are more fearful of a single infidelity; and women are more fearful of losing loyalty and affection. If this is true then men are less likely to forgive a single occasion in which there was sexual intercourse. And women are less likely to forgive men who show affection for other women, whether or not it went as far as sexual intercou...

https://www.iitutor.com John Donne (1573 -- 1631). John Donne was a British Renaissance poet famous for his poems on life, death and religion. His work is often dubbed as 'metaphysical' poetry due to his complex relationship with God and romantic themes. If poisonous minerals - This poem is Donne's argument about why death is not to be feared. Death is personified and belittled, ending with the paradox that 'death shall die'. This is tied in with Christian belief that death is met with eternal life, and so is not really a 'death' at all. The title reflects the crude personification of death; that it is proud of the fear often attached with it. Despite the title and a sense of connotation centred on death -- it is more a poem based on meditation. In this poem Donne's persona imagines hi...
Yesterday you thought the flame has flickered again
A feeling from the past you’d recognize
But maybe tomorrow morning I won’t be there
Cos if you’re looking for the answer, then it’s
Right before your eyes
Look into the mirror, who is it you see?
The face of someone now as cold as ice
The anger in your mind turns now toward regret
If you’re looking for the answer
Then it’s right before your eyes
When your bed is empty
And you’re thinking of me
Your mind will dwell on all your sacrifice
For surely tomorrow morning, I won’t be there
And if you’re looking for the answer, then it’s
