An Hymn To Sleep. - Poem by Mary Barber (Barber Mary)

Make This Poetry Your Favorite

Written when the Author was sick. Somnus, pow'rful Deity, Mortals owe their Bliss to thee. How long shall I thy Absence mourn, And when be bless'd in thy Return? Relentless God! why will you flee, And take Delight to torture me: Or do you kindly flight my Pray'r, To make me for my Change prepare? 'Tis well this Happiness remains; When you resuse to ease our Pains, Your Brother Death your Place supplies, And kindly seals the Wretch's Eyes. Mary Barber
