Last Poem of John Donne…a verse
‘I joy, that in these straits I see my west;
For, though these currents yield return to none.
What shall my west hurt me? As west and east
In all flat maps – and I am one – are one,
So death doth touch the resurrection.’ (John Donne, one verse from his last poem before death: Hymn To God, My God, In My sickness.
