Sleep bindes them fast

June 7, 2016

 


      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.
