1. Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night – Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

Because their words had forked no lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,

Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Goodnight, my Princess.

Goodnight, my every hue.

Goodnight, my moon and stars above.

Goodnight, my darling, true.

Goodnight, my universe,

My everything and more.

Goodnight, my trusted faithful,

And hark to hear the score.

Goodnight, my Beautiful,

And trust my words are true

For lest the sun rise suddenly,

I’ll start to write of you.

Goodnight, my single Only,

For it is to you whom I have swore

Never to lie, never to cheat,

Never to late return.

Goodnight, my dearest sunshine,

‘Till dawn shall bring us to,

And dream of me, my Princess,

As I shall dream of you.

3. Goodnight – Colm Istoirm

Goodnight father

Goodnight sun

Goodnight detestability of day and enjoyment of all things costly and fun

Goodnight to you

And goodnight to me

Goodnight dear bed frame and thank you for this, your stability

Goodnight my pillow

Goodnight my bed

Goodnight and would you carry me, over the moon and back again?

Goodnight to you, to these honest things, which I may or may not mind first thing in the morning

Goodnight my distant memories

And goodnight to my favorite mystery, to your quiet and kind consistencies

For it’s a good night I offer, honestly

A good night from another

A goodnight from me

Goodnight my father

Goodnight to your son

Goodnight moonlit stars and spinning earth

Though the turning therein has just begun

Goodnight my Lord, goodnight and please, watch over those in need of sleep

Goodnight my God, a good night to you

Good night you have been, good to me

4. Acquainted With The Night – Robert Frost

I have been one acquainted with the night.

I have walked out in rain – and back in rain.

I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.

I have passed by the watchman on his beat

And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet

When far away an interrupted cry

Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;

And further still at an unearthly height,

One luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.

I have been one acquainted with the night.

5. Good-Night – Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill

Which severs those it should unite;

Let us remain together still,

Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,

Though thy sweet wishes wing its flight?

Be it not said, thought, understood —

Then it will be — good night.

To hearts which near each other move

From evening close to morning light,

The night is good; because, my love,

They never say good-night.

6. A Night Thought – William Wordsworth

Lo! where the Moon along the sky

Sails with her happy destiny;

Oft is she hid from mortal eye

Or dimly seen,

But when the clouds asunder fly

How bright her mien!

Far different we–a froward race,

Thousands though rich in Fortune’s grace

With cherished sullenness of pace

Their way pursue,

Ingrates who wear a smileless face

The whole year through.

If kindred humours e’er would make

My spirit droop for drooping’s sake,

From Fancy following in thy wake,

Bright ship of heaven!

A counter impulse let me take

And be forgiven.

7. Flying At Night – Ted Kooser

Above us, stars. Beneath us, constellations.

Five billion miles away, a galaxy dies

like a snowflake falling on water. Below us,

some farmer, feeling the chill of that distant death,

snaps on his yard light, drawing his sheds and barn

back into the little system of his care.

All night, the cities, like shimmering novas,

tug with bright streets at lonely lights like his.

8. A Winter Night – Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

Sharp shivers thro’ the leafless bow’r;

When Phoebus gies a short-liv’d glow’r,

Far south the lift,

Dim-dark’ning thro’ the flaky show’r,

Or whirling drift:

Ae night the storm the steeples rocked,

Poor Labour sweet in sleep was locked,

While burns, wi’ snawy wreeths upchoked,

Wild-eddying swirl,

Or thro’ the mining outlet bocked,

Down headlong hurl.

List’ning, the doors an’ winnocks rattle,

I thought me on the ourie cattle,

Or silly sheep, wha bide this brattle

O’ winter war,

And thro’ the drift, deep-lairing, sprattle,

Beneath a scar.

Ilk happing bird, wee, helpless thing!

That, in the merry months o’ spring,

Delighted me to hear thee sing,

What comes o’ thee?

Whare wilt thou cow’r thy chittering wing

An’ close thy e’e?

Ev’n you on murd’ring errands toil’d,

Lone from your savage homes exil’d,

The blood-stain’d roost, and sheep-cote spoil’d

My heart forgets,

While pityless the tempest wild

Sore on you beats.

9. Night – William Blake

The sun descending in the west,

The evening star does shine;

The birds are silent in their nest,

And I must seek for mine.

The moon, like a flower,

In heaven’s high bower,

With silent delight

Sits and smiles on the night.

Farewell, green fields and happy groves,

Where flocks have took delight.

Where lambs have nibbled, silent moves

The feet of angels bright;

Unseen they pour blessing,

And joy without ceasing,

On each bud and blossom,

And each sleeping bosom.

They look in every thoughtless nest,

Where birds are covered warm;

They visit caves of every beast,

To keep them all from harm.

If they see any weeping

That should have been sleeping,

They pour sleep on their head,

And sit down by their bed.

When wolves and tigers howl for prey,

They pitying stand and weep;

Seeking to drive their thirst away,

And keep them from the sheep.

But if they rush dreadful,

The angels, most heedful,

Receive each mild spirit,

New worlds to inherit.

And there the lion’s ruddy eyes

Shall flow with tears of gold,

And pitying the tender cries,

And walking round the fold,

Saying, ‘Wrath, by His meekness,

And, by His health, sickness

Is driven away

From our immortal day.

‘And now beside thee, bleating lamb,

I can lie down and sleep;

Or think on Him who bore thy name,

Graze after thee and weep.

For, washed in life’s river,

My bright mane for ever

Shall shine like the gold

As I guard o’er the fold.’

10. Goodnight My Love – Skye Rhiannon

Just wanted to say to you my dear,

Goodnight and please sleep tight,

I will talk to you tomorrow,

But as for now please pretend i’m there,

Please just hold me tight,

Have the sweetest of dreams,

Feel free to invade my head anytime you wish,

May all your sweet dreams come true lover dear.
