The feeling of not knowing what could change at any time is showed on the last page “And then he thinks he knows The hills where his life rose, And the sea where it goes.” The sea is never ending and this is the comparison to life.
As John Donne explores the nature of unconditional love, he employs metaphors, symbolism, and tone as the three main elements that reinforce the theme and contribute to creating a poem that both moves and connects to the reader. Throughout the poem, Donne employs metaphors extensively to emphasize the spiritual dimension of the love he shares with his wife. In the first stanza, the author compares his leaving with the death of “virtuous men” (line 1). As these men “whisper to their souls to go” (line 2), the lovers ought to accept the departure like the men are able to detach their bodies from their souls, and separate peacefully. As he continues to comfort his wife, he invites her to “make no noise” (line 5) and suggests that there should be “No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move” (line 6).

Within this poem our author is telling us how beautiful and tranquil this place is. “And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: And I shall have peace there, for the peace comes dripping slow,” (Yeats 1141).
Although it may appear that he thinks that his wife loves him so much that she needs practice for when he dies, in other words he is fond of himself and that his wife loves him so much, he simply accepts that she loves him and is making this point purely to reassure her and make amends for his reluctant absence from her life.

However, they both tell of their relationship and of their love. In answer to my beginning statement that I do not think that John Donne is more concerned with writing about himself than with adoring his mistress, I still believe that.
They souls have grown to one, and bound them together. It compares earthquakes to his wife’s pain and sorrow. Saying that the earthly nature is bound to happen, we can’t stop the inevitable which he described his absences as; unavoidable. This is by far one of the greatest love poems ever written. “John Donne has been called the poet of mutual love, he understand loving the body compared to the mind and soul.” (Storer) When the day comes when one falls in love, they can learn a lot from this single poem.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge was known for being a big hearted man. In his poem “This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison” Coleridge proves this legacy by caring for his dear friend Charles. In his own discontentment, Coleridge sits in his garden and wishes his friend could enjoy the luxuries of nature daily. His situation that summer in 1797 provided him the opportunity to emotionally express this simple appreciation of nature in three brilliant stanzas. Initially, the situation of Coleridge’s circumstances and the story are vital in dissecting this poem.
