Thank you to Ellen, my poetry professor in college, for teaching us John Donne’s  “A Valediction Forbidding Mourning” and making poetry a part of our daily lives.

If they be two, they are two so                                      
    As stiff twin compasses are two ;  
Thy soul, the fix'd foot, makes no show  
    To move, but doth, if th' other do.

Such wilt thou be to me, who must,
    Like th' other foot, obliquely run ;
Thy firmness makes my circle just,                                  
    And makes me end where I begun.
