The style and topic of this poem connects back to how Pope would have liked to live his life - a simple life away from the judgement and drama of society. I've never seen any anger in the sun at noon when it burns relentlessly on the desert dune. I awoke to the faint sound of hoofbeats as dawn was rising and there were pretty flowers in my hair.

A Poem A Day: Day 8

the quiet life poem

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 mixt, sweet recreation, And innocence, which most does please With meditation.

He also wishes not to go abroad to France or anywhere else to make money or to enjoy, as others in his times did. For lawyers and their pleading, They esteem it not a straw; They think that honest meaning Is of itself a law; Where conscience judgeth plainly They spend no money vainly.

118. Quiet Life. A. Pope. The Golden Treasury

the quiet life poem

Let him who will, by force or fraud innate, Of courtly grandeurs gain the slippery height; I, leaving not the home of my delight, Far from the world and noise will meditate Then, without pomps or perils of the great, I shall behold the day succeed the night; Behold the alternate seasons take their flight, And in serene repose old age await. Word-whispers from the page caressed me wispy thrill reminding me of days sweet gilt of daffodil and petals pink neath dream girl skies so soft, in sooth enchanting was the tender season of her youth. Then we can make lots of pumpkin pies for us to eat. The times that we share at the pool or parks Is precious to me as watching them grow. It was as if time stood still.

His day time would be devoted to a recreation-like studying. Suddenly transported through the tunnel smelling flowers a jorney taking minutes but feeling like hours and soon the sights and sounds ignited quiet hospital room while my loved ones endured possibility of doom. Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread, Whose flocks supply him with attire; Whose trees in summer yield him shade, In winter, fire. We were warmly welcomed into their sacred sanctuary and I felt enchanted by their sylvan beauty as two tiny faeries braided long strands of my golden hair, intertwining fragrant flowers. As I look back now.
