Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


More Poems. 48. Parta Quies


Good-night; ensured release,
Imperishable peace,
        Have these for yours,
While sea abides, and land,
And earths foundations stand,
        And heaven endures.

When earths foundations flee,
Nor sky nor land nor sea
        At all is found,
Content you, let them burn:
It is not your concern;
        Sleep on, sleep sound.
