GO, AND CATCH A FALLING STAR

Go and catch a falling star,
Get with child a mandrake root,
Tell me, where all past years are,
Or who cleft the devilís foot,
Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
Or to keep off envyís stinging,
And find
What wind
Serves to advance an honest mind.

If thou beíest born to strange sights,
Things invisible to see,
Ride ten thousand days and nights,
Till age snow white hairs on thee,
Thou, when thou returníst, wilt tell me
All strange wonders that befell thee,
And swear
No where
Lives a woman true, and fair.

If thou findíst one, let me know,
Such a pilgrimage were sweet,
Yet do not, I would not go,
Though at next door we might meet,
Though she were true, when you met her,
And last, till you write your letter,
Yet she
Will be
False, ere I come, to two, or three.

~ John Donne
