Sleep


Sleep in its precious form can be changed
If at all it can be objectively replaced
Conscious in sleep is a boon to life
As the night is utilized for higher working
And the body can get its due rest
The body can rest as the mind works
Renewing the vital physical force
Do not deny the body food and sleep
As if it wears out without rest and need
No impulse can make it work and do
Meditation and vital energy keep at work
But not with over straining physical system
Drawing board line of life is no longer easy
As you decline the physical body its due care
Perhaps possible with efficient working
And moderate and reliable thought and food
Without any overflowing greed or undue desire
All you need is sufficient self planned sleep
Not the one of heavy unconscious kind to rule
Fill it up with what makes your body strong
Soul calm to reclaim the energies it duly need!

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
