The Pillow Hot

The pillow hot
On both sides,
The second candle
Dying, the ravens
Crying. Haven't
Slept all night, too late
To dream of sleep...
How unbearably white
The blind on the white window.
Good morning, morning!

    Haven't
    Slept all night, too late
    To dream of sleep...
    How unbearably white
    The blind on the white window.
    Good morning, morning!
