On Chloe sleeping

Hush to peace each ruder wind!
Purling rills, in silence roll,
While, on rosy bed reclined,
Sleeps the charmer of my soul.

Chaste Diana, watch my treasure,
Guard her beauty from alarms.
Let no satyr's brutal pleasure
Dare invade her blooming charms.

Somnus, god of balmy rest,
Sweetly slumb'ring let her prove
Ev'ry joy, which Strephon blessed
Could bestow in waking love.
