Go and Catch a Falling Star

A few nice John Donne images I found:

Go and Catch a Falling Star

Image by garlandcannon
Go and catch a falling star,
Get with child a mandrake root,
Tell me where all past years are,
Or who cleft the Devil’s foot,
Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
Or to keep off envy’s stinging,
And find
What wind
Serves to advance an honest mind.
— JohnDonne
