Samuel Daniel (1562October 14, 1619) was an English poet and historian.


  • The greatest works of admiration,
    And all the fair examples of renown.
    Out of distress and misery are grown.
    • Earl of Southampton
  • Care-Charmer Sleep, son of the sable Night,
    Brother to Death, in silent darkness born,
    Relieve my languish, and restore the light;
    With dark forgetting of my care return.
    And let the day be time enough to mourn
    The shipwreck of my ill adventured youth
    • Sonnet XLV from Delia [1]
