  1. No, “hairs” is correct. Why would you think it otherwise? It means that when we grow old, our “hair” turns white, ergo “til age snows white hairs on thee.”

  2. Don’t like this reading.Too much of Richard Burton and not enough of the poem.I like the sound of his voice but I like the poem more!

  3. Lovely reading, but line 13 should be, “‘Til age snow-white HARES on thee”, not “HAIRS on thee”. Big difference…

  4. I’m very much enjoying these poetry uploads I find in my subscriptions. Wonderful to hear Richard Burton reading John Donne.
