Poem by Robert Greene
SWEET are the thoughts that savor of content; The quiet mind is richer than a crown; Sweet are the nights in careless slumber spent; The poor estate scorns Fortune's angry frown. Such sweet content, such minds, such sleep, such bliss, Beggars enjoy, when princes oft do miss. The homely house that harbors quiet rest; The cottage that affords no pride nor care; The mean that 'grees with country music best; The sweet consort of mirth and music's fare; Obscurиd life sets down a type of bliss: A mind content both crown and kingdom is.
