Calling Card

Metaphysical Musings

Donne isn't afraid to ask the big questions, and he isn't afraid to ask the Big Guy in the sky for answers or to make demands of His time. The Metaphysical Poets loved contemplating the cosmic beyond, and Donne's poetry travels through that realm frequently. Check out "Batter my Heart (Holy Sonnet 14)" or "Death Be Not Proud (Holy Sonnet 10)" for more spiritual lines.
