Now These Slow Soundings Are Saying, You Will Die

Pastor Clark handed me John Donne's Meditation XVII about a month ago. Since then, I've been staring at the opening sentence, which I'm unsure whether he penned or quoted, but here it is:

Nunc lento sonitu dicunt, morieris.

I've had that written into my journal for some weeks. I'll occasionally flip to the page and wiggle my pen, but I haven't written anything about it...but it's pretty. Hope you like seeing it as much as I do.
