sleep

Sleep

So tired, so weary
from the worries of the day
a fervent wish for rest
to silently float away

Adrift in a tiny boat
on a lake quiet and deep
with nature gathered round me
to lull me into sleep

No sound of distant traffic
nor light from nearby homes
just surrounded by the woodlands
and perhaps its fabled gnomes

A soft enchanting lullaby
from the crickets melodies
and the lightly blowing wind
that whispers through the trees

The stars high above me
winking in delight\
to bestow their wish of sweet dreams
and tender kiss goodnight

The boat slowly rocking
back and forth, and to and fro
from the gently lapping waters
and their hypnotizing flow

And all my cares and worries
begin to seep away
with the movement of the boats
calm and soothing sway

The crickets still sing their song
for I never heard them cease
I have fallen into slumber
and a welcome dream of peace

sleep
