Review: The Selected Poetry of John Donne

The Selected Poetry of John DonneThe Selected Poetry of John Donne by John Donne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Primrose, Being at Montgomery Castle,
upon the Hill, on Which it is Situated

Upon this primrose hill,
Where, if Heaven would distill
A shower of rain, each several drop might go
To his own primrose, and grow manna so;
And where their form, and their infinity

Make a terrestrial galaxy,
As the small stars do in the sky:
I walk to find a true love; and I see
That 'tis not a mere woman, that is she,
But must, or more, or less than woman be.


Great stars share Life & Love so may prosper:
According to lines 5 and 6 are we so directed
to mirror the Divine Will of the Creator here
on Earth, as it is in Heaven. So may Humanity
support expansion of happiness in ALL BEINGS.
