Ode to Sleeping

Ode to Sleeping

Oh how my gaze falls lovingly upon you,
Ere the hours of long night draws neigh
The golden moon watches through shadow trees
And the stars are veiled in their slumber

O how I would to be as those stars
To lay my head upon your soft pillow
To wrap my self in your blanket so warm
And close my eyes in sweet peace

I see you there, in the corner
Calling, inviting me to your warm arms
My soul faints at your temptation
And I cannot resist for much longer

O to fall upon your wondrous springs
Your soft, warmth lulling me to dreamless sleep
Claimed by rest only you can bring
O how I long to come to you my bed!
