(4.8 stars; 3 reviews)

LibriVox volunteers bring you seven different readings of the short poem Song by John Donne, a weekly poetry project. Song is a bitter little poem on the falsity of women: search the world for ages, see mythical wonders, but you’ll not find a true woman. Deep hurt is the bane of the loving heart.

A beautiful poem

(5 stars)

I was reintroduced ot this by Neil Gaiman's "Stardust". What a beautiful poem, even if you don't agree with the author.
