John Donne did jail time for his marriage to Ann More. Maybe he isn't a perfect role model, but the guy knew a thing or two about love. (Source.)

Billy Collins wrote a poem about trying to memorize "The Sun Rising." We think you should do the same. (Source.)

Okay, we can't exactly prove it, but Shmoop has always had a hunch that the holiday song "Winter Wonderland" stole its famous line, "love knows no season, love knows no clime" from this poem. Do you think we're on to something?
