Poem  Text

       I wonder by my troth, what thou and I
       Did, till we loved ? Were we not wean’d till then?
       But suck’d on country pleasures, childishly?
       Or snorted we in the Seven Sleeper’s den ?
       “Twas so ; but this, all pleasures fancies be;
       If ever any beauty I did see,
       Which desired, and got, ‘twas but a dream of thee.
       And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
       Which watch not one another out of fear;
       For love, all love of other sights controls,
       And makes one little room an everywhere,
       Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone;

       Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have thee
       Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one.
       My face in thine eye, thien in mine appears,
       And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
       Where can we find two better hemispheres,
       Without sharp north, without declining west?
       Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
       If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
       Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.


       1) Their live begins when they fall in love
       Before marriage they were babies , just like they used to meet secretly now they become a mature
       Now they asleep from seven sleepers( Ancient time catholic was hiding in a cave  from the killers who was killing them, they stayed there for more than 2 hundred years) – Now John Donne comparing his fancy love and  True love , all past desires - Fancies
       The women whom he got now(wife) was the dream , when they were lovers they wanted each other but now they achieved , it’s a great achievement
       2) constant trusting love – they blindly trust and believe of their love
       No jealous , trust is in their eye – the trust of love now is in their eyes which can easily appear
       The author feels complete and self-sufficient – before his beloved the author feels incomplete but now his beloved completes him
       Lovers abandoned the external world – what happens , what discovered they don’t have any interest to knowing about the world or country , their only interest is the happiness of their love    
       3) Images in their eyes – images has been captured in their eyes, when they close or open they use to see each other
       Even though , When world divides into hemisphere , their love is united and can able to cross all the boundaries of the external world
       Love cannot die as it is pure love :  However death may divide their physical love but not their spiritual  

       Before the marriage – After the Marriage
       True love helps to better person
       Winter and Nightfall
       Possibility of death  -  Mutuality human life and love
       They remains perfect

       Not die ultimate threat challenge the power of death


       Lovers as microcosm
       Neo - plutonic love
       Microcosmic – Physical world intellect govern the body
       Lovers so deeply in their love, others not care so much
