Francis Quarles (Фрэнсис Куорлс)


A Good Night


Close now thine eyes and rest secure;
Thy soul is safe enough, thy body sure;
He that loves thee, He that keeps
And guards thee, never slumbers, never sleeps.
The smiling conscience in a sleeping breast
Has only peace, has only rest;
The music and the mirth of kings
Are all but very discords, when she sings;
Then close thine eyes and rest secure;
No sleep so sweet as thine, no rest so sure. 



Francis Quarles's other poems:
  1. On the Life and Death of Man
  2. Delight In God Only
  3. On Change of Weather
  4. Respice Finem
  5. The Loadstone
