"Death be not Proud"
by John Donne
One of my favorite poems is "Death be not Proud" by John Donne. I saw Wit many years ago with Emma Thompson who portrayed a college poetry professor, who found she had terminal cancer. This was the poem she spent her life unraveling. I was struck by the strength of the poem and the person who was dying and it reminds me of how strong people can be when facing death ... alone.
