Song

by John Donne (1573-1631)

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
Services 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,
And swear
No where
Lives a woman true and fair.

If thou find’st one,
let me know;
Such a pilgrimage were sweet.
Yet do not; I would not go,
Though at next door we might meet,
Though she were true when you met her,
And last, till you write your letter,
Yet she
Will be
False, ere I come, to two or three.
