Come to me, thou Slumber Sweet,
When weariness my head doth meet
From all the fleeting thoughts of Day,
As they flash in their odd way!
Greetings to thee, Lovely Maiden,
Thou forever with Charms laiden--
Who gently woos me from all pain,
Pampers 'til my Strength's regained!

SWEET REPOSE, true Friend indeed,
Whose very presence fills my need
Who comes without a jeering sigh,
Nor Suspicion's pressing "Why?"
She works in silence Her fine Arts,
Until her Magic, she imparts
With fond carress and watchful eye,
While I in Oblivion fly!

Sleep equates a Communion,
"Sweet Repose" enacts the union
In an elusive Rendezvous,
Where I am gently swept from view
To hide away from Life's swift Road,
To pause, unburdened from my load.
A way of life, by no means meant--
But o how Sweet those moments spent!
