Love's mysteries

His feast day is today.

John Donne was at various times an adventurer, poet, Anglican priest, contemplative and lover. He was always a lover.

. . .Let not thy divining heart
Forethink me any ill ;
Destiny may take thy part,
And may thy fears fulfil.
But think that we
Are but turn'd aside to sleep.
They who one another keep
Alive, ne'er parted be.
