FOR SLEEP WHEN OVERTIRED OR WORRIED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Cares and anxieties
Last Line: I sleep ... I rest ... I sleep.
Subject(s): Sleep


Cares and anxieties,
I roll you all up in a bundle together;
I carry you across the meadow to the river.
River, I am throwing in a bundle of cares and anxieties.
Float it away to the sea!
Now I come slowly back across the meadow,
Slowly into the house,
Slowly up to my room.
The night is quiet and cool;
The lights are few and dim;
The sounds are drowsy and far away and melting into each other;
Melting into the night.
Sleep comes creeping nearer, creeping nearer;
It goes over my head like a wave.
I sleep ... I rest ... I sleep.
