Early Rising

'GOD bless the man who first invented sleep!'
So Sancho Panza said, and so say I:
And bless him, also, that he didn't keep
His great discovery to himself; nor try
To make it-as the lucky fellow might-
A close monopoly by patent-right!

Yes; bless the man who first invented sleep
(I really can't avoid the iteration);
