John Dryden (Джон Драйден)


* * *


Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He who can call today his own:
He who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
Be fair or foul or rain or shine
The joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself upon the past has power,
But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour. 



John Dryden's other poems:
  1. On Mrs. Margaret Paston, of Barningham, in Norfolk
  2. A Song (High State and Honours to others impart)
  3. Epitaph on a Nephew in Catworth Church, Huntingdonshire
  4. On the Monument of the Marquis of Winchester
  5. Epitaph On Sir Palmes Fairborne's Tomb In Westminster Abbey
