Scratches head

But 'Death be not proud' *doesn't* fit the tune of Old Black Joe. It's all tens, and OBJ is 11/11/11/12. Unless there's some weirdness in Donne's pronunciation that I'm not catching.

Mind, it took me a bit to fit House of the Rising Sun to Ghost Riders in the Sky, so I can't claim I have the talent instinctively.
