Farewell to Folly

1 Sweet are the thoughts that savour of content;
2 The quiet mind is richer than a crown;
3 Sweet are the nights in careless slumber spent;
4 The poor estate scorns fortune's angry frown:
5 Such sweet content, such minds, such sleep, such bliss,
6 Beggars enjoy, when princes oft do miss.

7 The homely house that harbours quiet rest;
8 The cottage that affords no pride nor care;

[Hata Bildir]
