From Poems

I'm doing this sort of project wherein I icon-ize poems, usually only the most interesting (to me) stanzas, line by line. Here are a few. The icons stand alone, although weirdly, but are also part of a larger context. I'm using mostly rhyming poems for these, because the rhyme lends a nice consistency to the whole thing. And I always liked rhymes anyway.

First Stanza of Song — John Donne
