Guess the Poem of the Week: Had we but world enough, and time…

Had we but world enough and time

Okay, so clearly it’s supposed to be: Had we but world enough, and time…

But I thought I’d post this as I think it’s quite endearing. The beautiful illustration is by my lovely friend, Msxi. See more of her fantastic work at http://www.messymsxi.com/

Cheek, banter, mirth but with that hint of foreboding is what, at least to me, makes this one of my favourite poems.

Can you guess what the poem is and who wrote it? (*Mum, no, you’re disqualified). Hint: He’s a metaphysical poet.

    Erm, that’s cheating. But fine, that’s correct. Some musings on it soon!
