    Lest it be thought that John Donne's famous poems and holy sonnets have been put aside, let me just say that they're likely to be uploaded next!

    The original; and our version.

    Wonderful! I wrote a paper on the Metaphysical Poets at one point in my academic career (before I was Anglican). My favorite is still Donne's "For Whom the Bell Tolls":

    No man is an island,

    Entire of itself.

    Each is a piece of the continent,

    A part of the main.

    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 thine own

    Or of thine friend's were.

    Each man's death diminishes me,

    For I am involved in mankind.

    Therefore, send not to know

    For whom the bell tolls,

    It tolls for thee.
