    Come, Sleep! O Sleep, the certain knot of peace,
    The baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe,
    The poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release,
    Th' indifferent judge between the high and low;
    With shield of proof shield me from out the press
    Of those fierce darts Despair at me doth throw!
    O make in me those civil wars to cease! -
    I will good tribute pay if thou do so.
    Take thou of me smooth pillows, sweetest bed,
    A chamber deaf of noise and blind of light,
    A rosy garland, and a weary head;
    And if these things, as being thine in right,
    Move not thy heavy grace, thou shalt in me,
    Livelier than elsewhere, Stella's image see.



    Nice lil poem before bedtime, goodnight everyone
