Grade 12 Poetry

Death Be Not         Proud        From Holy Sonnets
John Donne

Death be not        proud        , though some have called thee
Mighty and            dreadful           , for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think'st thou dost             overthrow            ,
Die not, poor         Death        , nor yet canst thou kill me.
Much rest and sleep, which but thy           picture           be,
Much            pleasure           ; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our        best        men with thee do go,
Rest of their         bones        , and soul's delivery.
Thou art slave to fate, chance, war, and            sickness            dwell,
And dost with poison, war, and            sickness            dwell,
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as        well       ,
And           better           than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
One short         sleep         past, we wake eternally,
And         death         shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
