1. Good Night by Bernhart Paul Holst

Good night! Fade the parting rays of light;

Now the daily labors end,

Rest comes to the busy hand,

Until the morning wakens bright,

Good night!


Go to rest!

Close your eyes with feelings best.

For the birds have hushed the song

They were chirping all day long,

And the night makes this request:

Go to rest!

Close your eyes!

Dream of a happy Paradise,

Life is not always what it seems,

But sleep requites with happy dreams

Recompense for him who tries.

Close your eyes!

Good night!

Slumber on ’till morning light.

Sleep until the new tomorrow

Comes with its own toil and sorrow;

Until the morning wakens bright,

Good night!


2. The Day Is Over by Catherine Pulsifer


The day is over you’ve done your best

Now is the time for you to rest

You can’t change the events of the day

You can’t change the things others say


Tomorrow is an opportunity to begin

New opportunities to take in

A good night sleep will help you decide

The best opportunities to provide


Sleep well this night

Turn out the lights

Thank God for the day

And find sleep will be on the way.

Goodnight from far away poems


3. At Night by Lillian E Curtis


Time, when the world with its weary cares and insidious snares,

With its smiles and frowns, and ups and downs,

With its harsh words cold, and stares so bold,

With its many a mansion, and lovers of fashion,

With its hovels and huts, and scornful cuts,

With its few generous hands, to reach where Worth stands,

With its tired brains, its losses and gains,

With its aching hearts, its cruel darts,

With its steam of prosperity, its wheels of adversity,

Time, when the weary world, by Fate’s finger twirled,

Bars its factory door for the rich and the poor,

From the Squire to the Clerk, all rest from their work,

And the world is shut in by a door whose hinges are light,

And the name of this door is the beautiful Night.


4. Wishing You by Kate Summers


Wishing you a peaceful sleep

From you, we will hear not a peep

Tired from a hard day’s work

Sleep should come without a shirk.


May you have sweet dreams tonight

And in the morning awake so bright

May the angels watch over you

Keep you safe until the morning dew.


Tomorrow is a brand new day

But tonight sleep is needed I must say

Love you today but tomorrow more

Life has much for you in-store.


The night has become so quiet now

Close your eyes and take a bow

You did your best the day is done

Awake in the morning with the sun.


5. But at Night by Sam Fickinsen

Each day I wish you a good day

But at night I must say

I love you see you in the morn

And let you know you I adore


Each day with you is a special one

We always laugh and have some fun

But night brings and end to the day

It brings us peace in every way.


So as we lay down our heads

And cover up all snug in bed

I wish you a good night

And can’t wait to see you at first light.


6. A Wish by Theodore Higginsworth

A wish for a good night

And a sleep that is just right.

Pray that tomorrow you will awake

And it will be a day you can make

One more step to make dreams come true

And you will find success in all you do!

Text good night to a friend


7. Night by Norma Beard


The sky is lit with a million stars,

The moon is shining bright –

The best part of the glorious day

Is when it turns to night.


The river’s water ripples soft

In the pale moonlight:

It seems to sing a happy song,

A song of great delight.


The leaves on the trees are dancing

To a fairy tune;

They whirl around, twirl around,

And seem to touch the moon.


And then the shadowy figures

Of a hundred cherry trees

Are lifting their arms up to the sky

And are laughing in the breeze.


Of course the bird

On its outspread wing

Homeward safely flies –

And to think I can see it all

With my own two eyes.


8. Good Night! By Victor Hugo


Good night! Good night!

Far flies the light;

But still God’s love

Shall flame above,

Making all bright.

Good night! Good night!


9. Bid Me Good Morning by A. L. Barbauld


Life! we’ve been long together

Through pleasant and through cloudy weather,

‘Tis hard to part when friends are dear, –

Perhaps ’twill cost a sigh, a tear;

Then steal away, give little warning.

Choose thine own time;

Say not Good Night, – but in some brighter clime

Bid me Good Morning.
