*Illustration reference: Sanderson Mansnoozie

from “Rise of the Guardians” (2012) from

the illustrations of William Joyce from

“The Sandman and the War of Dreams”

I have no trouble reaching sleep

Repose in slumber, low and deep

For mind and body ache for rest

At end of day, in linen nest

When knowing well you gave your all

You listen for the Sandman’s call

Who lures and lulls to quietude

Where stress and worry won’t intrude

There’s nothing else I know that feels

As good or helps your cricks to heal

Yet there are those that toss and turn

Whose faithful candle ever burns

I wish for you to find some peace

The turning mind will be at ease

And needed calm allows you mend

A recompense at long day’s end…
