Rest

"Even as the sun was bestowed upon the world by God to give light
it still ought to turn aside fairly frequently,
to have a time for peace and quiet...
it ought to know how to set
and be at rest in the evening,
where it enters the embrace of leisure."

- John of Forde (1150-1214) (The Way of Simplicity, Esther De Waal)
