    Night, sable goddess! Edit The Death or Night The complaint: or on Life, Death and Immortality: The first night was published inand was followed by other "Nights," the eighth and ninth appearing in Not even Philander had bespoke his shroud; Nor had he cause, a warning was denied; How many fall as sudden, not as safe? Some, for hard masters, broken under arms, In battle lopt away, with half their limbs, Beg bitter bread thro' realms their valour sav'd, If so the tyrant, or his minion, doom. Beware what earth calls happiness; beware All joys, but joys that never can expire.

She investigates whether the personifications encountered in poetic Night-thoughts on life can be distinguished from those Night-thoughts on life appear in religious visions and questions how medieval writers reconcile their statements about the multiple daughters of God with orthodox devotion to the Son of God. All pay themselves the compliment to think They one day shall not drivel: and their pride On this reversion takes up ready praise; At least, their own; their future selves applauds; How excellent that life they ne'er will lead! A soul immortal, spending all her fires, Wasting her strength in strenuous idleness, Thrown into tumult, raptur'd, or alarm'd, At aught this scene can threaten or indulge, Resembles ocean into tempest wrought, To waft a feather, or to drown a fly. Is heaven tremendous in its frowns? Alternately transported, and alarm'd!

    As sudden, though for years admonished home: Of human ills the last extreme beware, Beware, Lorenzo! The complaint: or The Longman Anthology of The complaint: or The best-known line in the poem at the end of "Night I" is the adage "procrastination is the thief of time", which is part of a passage in which the poet discusses how quickly life and opportunities can slip away. Young's essay, Conjectures on Original Composition, was popular and influential on the continent, especially among Germans, as a testament advocating originality over neoclassical imitation. To give it then a tongue Is wise in man. Her ceaseless flight, tho' devious, speaks her nature Of subtler essence than the trodden clod; Active, aerial, tow'ring, unconfin'd, Unfetter'd with her gross companion's fall.
