Rating: 3.0
Some man unworthy to be possessor
Of old or new love, himself being false or weak,
Thought his pain and shame would be lesser
If on womankind he might his anger wreak,

I see advocacy for polygamy and open relationships. Though I tend to rally for confined love, this is a beautiful piece.

Donne is shrewdly criticising the origin and hypocrisy of a patriarchal society.

Interesting that he makes the point of confined love barely being love at all, but rather, the ownership of another. I think that is the point of his last line...the greed is our apparent need to own love.

Love cannot thrive on hurdles! If there are many how can there be love? But natural things cannot be restrained by law ever!

Written in that time frame, this poem was really political. Expressing one's self. KINGS & QUEENS ruled the roost. Art was flourishing. But, human freedom was oppressed by them CASTLES. The poem asking the reader the question of liberty. Many crossed the ocean to the New Land for freedoms from them KINGS & QUEENS.

When I read the first lines of this poem they sounded strangely familiar to me, then when a strangely familiar melody came to my mind as well, I found out that I know this poem as it was turned into a beautiful and very powerful song by the Inchtabokatables.
