SLEEP. The night has come, the day is done, Sleep beckons me along. Shuts the world's door, and opens more Her world, where phantoms throng; I wist I love the garish light Not half so well as dews of night. Sweet sleep! Beneath her gentle reign Life's burdens drop away, The sore-bestead come forth again Like school-children to play; Yet, while in blissful slumbers deep. The mind can work and plan in sleep. A whisnered word—we know not whence— To counsel or to warn. Comes to enlight our inner sense. And guide us, e'er the morn. Night's mirror shows us in review What we have done, and mean to do. Friends gone before—a chosen band- Steal through Time's misty glades. Again they smile and give the hand, Thev wait us in the shades; Is Time's sad current hard to stem?- We sleep in peace and dream of them. Was one dav's brightness sullied o'er By breach of truth or trust?— Night's finger stern points, out the sore, The case to re-adjust; Should vouth essay some noble end That titan Time will be his friend. Sleep has conditions; labour brave, Can slumbers soft attain, The idle and the vicious crave Her solace oft in vain; No piliow like a record clear, Cringing to none, nor knowing fear.
