Sleep now, O sleep now,
    O you unquiet heart!
A voice crying "Sleep now"
    Is heard in my heart.

The voice of the winter
    Is heard at the door.
O sleep, for the winter
    Is crying "Sleep no more."

My kiss will give peace now
    And quiet to your heart --
Sleep on in peace now,
    O you unquiet heart!

- James Joyce, Chamber Music.
According to Joyce this poem was "vitally the end of the book," completing the cycle in the original printing before the two additional tailpieces were added.
