by Patience Strong

Sleep is a soft and gentle hand that charms away all strift -
And draws us with a magic touch from out the grasp of Life -
It throws into our tired eyes the golden dust of dreams -
And we forget our failures and our little futile schemes...

If you've a grievance in your heart, don't rail and storm and weep -
Just put a finger one the lips and then lie down and sleep -
And in the morning when you wake, you'll take a different view -
For God gives you another day in which to start anew.
