As we are proud to officially launch a poets page about the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, we present the poem Good-night.

The poem Good-night was written somewhere between 1820 and 1822. It is a clear example of poetry from the Romantic Era. The poem doesn’t dwell on anything to do with nature. Instead it focusses on time and especially the nightly hours. It is another sancity of imagination, captured by Shelley.

In this nightly hour, the poet finds a way to express his feelings about beauty and love. The night seems to comfort him, but there is also the sense of loneliness, even when he is with someone.

This is Romanticism at its finest. This is Good-night by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Good-night

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.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
