So Amazing

My favorite

Break of Day (Another of the Same)

 'TIS true, 'tis day ; what though it be?

O, wilt thou therefore rise from me?

Why should we rise because 'tis light?

Did we lie down because 'twas night?

Love, which in spite of darkness brought us hither,

Should in despite of light keep us together.



Light hath no tongue, but is all eye ;

If it could speak as well as spy,

This were the worst that it could say,

That being well I fain would stay,

And that I loved my heart and honour so

That I would not from him, that had them, go.



Must business thee from hence remove?

O ! that's the worst disease of love,

The poor, the foul, the false, love can

Admit, but not the busied man.

He which hath business, and makes love, doth do

Such wrong, as when a married man doth woo.

Actually my first Donne poem too. We read it in English class, and I instantly fell in love with it. My class still thinks I'm crazy because I always ask to analyze his poems because I always figure them first :).
