...Valediction: Forbidding Mourning” 25 July 2006 John Donne’s “A Valediction: Forbidden Mourning” isa poem about a man explaining to his wife the state of their love and how it will be as he prepares for a journey. The title illustrates a farewell forbidding an unhappy and mournful state before a departure.
