abab quatrain couplet
By John Donne
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,
Serves to advance an honest mind.
If thou be’st born to strange sights,
Things invisible to see,
Ride ten thousand days and nights,
Till age snow white hairs on thee,
Thou, when thou return’st, wilt tell me
All strange wonders that befell thee,
Lives a woman true, and fair.
If thou find’st one, let me know,
Such a pilgrimage were sweet,
Yet do not, I would go,
Though at next door were sweet,
Though she were true when you met her,
And last till you write your letter,
False, here I come, to two, or three.
