Sunday Poem: John Donne – Daybreak

John Donne. 1573–1631
  
Daybreak
  
STAY, O sweet and do not rise!
The light that shines comes from thine eyes;
The day breaks not: it is my heart,
  Because that you and I must part.
      Stay! or else my joys will die          5
      And perish in their infancy.
