O sleep!

O sleep,

I wish for your quiet departure

from the tense layers of mortal life

to a world of only this body’s making

in a gentle place without strife.

 

But alas,

tonight your wistful drowsy ways

have not descended on this troubled head,

and so the only world is the one of thought

upon this tossed and restless bed.
