Sleep a Moment, Frosted Face


Sleep a moment, frosted face of ever-changing hour!
Rest your pearly company onto the sky, as promising
As smiles and books. Please don't dishearten my eyes,
Which tonight, can only be dimmed with your ticking
Of waning light. I can only hope the promised absence
Of your face will not rob the glow on mine. And with it
The story of my smiles and delicate moments hardening
With your next show. Just tonight, sitting on your couch
Of cosmos and happy air, rest a while; shine your time
On us, and let us serve every muscle of our bliss to you.
In return, how humbly we accept your virtues as master
And crown! Tonight, smile a while in your heavenly
Sleep, so that we can smile with you.

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
