THE QUIET LIFE

Happy the man, whose wish and care

A few paternal acres bound,

Content to breath his native air

In his own ground.

Whose herds with milks, whose fields with bread,

Whose flocks supply him with attire;

Whose trees in summer yield him shade,

In winter, fire.

Blest, who can unconcern’dly find

Hours, days and years, slide soft away

In health of body, peace of mind

Quiet by day.

Sound sleep by night, study and ease

Together mix’d; sweet recreation,

And innocence, which most does please

With meditation.

Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;

Thus unlamented let me die;

Steal from the world, and not a stone

Tell where I lie.

 

[A.POPE]
