When boyes go first to bed, They step into their voluntarie graves; Sleep bindes them fast; onely their breath Makes them not dead. Successive nights, like rolling waves, Convey them quickly, who are bound for death.
George Herbert, The Works of George Herbert (London: George Routledge & Co., 1854), 98.
