While youthful revels, masques, and courtly sights
Sleep's leaden spells remove.

Much speech hath some defense,
Though beauty no remorse.
All do not all things well:
Some measures comely tread,

Winter Nights

NOW winter nights enlarge
   The number of their hours,
   And clouds their storms discharge
   Upon the airy towers.
   Let now the chimneys blaze
   And cups o'erflow with wine;
   Let well-tuned words amaze
   With harmony divine.
   Now yellow waxen lights
