book 15

Sleep for me

     no friend is

and coming night

     to soon be


and the day

     too short to ‘tis

that at its end

     I need not rest


and the night

     too long is

much more than I

     do ever need


when to bed

     I do go

and the clock

     I do stare


till at last

     for hours few

darkness is

     and dreams reign


quick I awake

     refreshed not

without need

     one sleep more


I arise

     in the night

to go forth

     and await the day
