<Happy the man, whose wish and care
 A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air
. In his own ground.>

Whose heards with milk, whose fields with breads ,
 Whose flocks suplly him with attire,
Whose trees in summer yield him shade.
 In winter , fire.

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 mix'd ; sweet recreation;
And innocence, which most does please
 with meditation.

Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;
 Thus unlamented let me die,
Steal from the world, amd not a stone
 Tell where I lie. >

 ――Alexander Pope : Ode on Solitude
