bright star
In such a scorching age as this
Who would not ever seek a shade,
Deserve their happiness to miss,
As having their own peace betrayed.

But we (of one another's mind
Assured) the boisterous world disdain;
With quiet souls and unconfined
Enjoy what princes wish in vain.

"A Retired Friendship, to Ardelia," Katherine Philips, 1667.
