The Sleep

To sleep or to fall asleep?
I listen to the sound of the willows that weep,
And the sloshes through puddles from the frogs that doth leap,
A barrier bordering berries and bees,
Sheltering them from the bats up in the trees,
And the thorns on the roses gleam
In the moonlight’s high- lighting beam,
Such forbidden beauty I wish I could keep,
As I lie down to fall asleep.
