O MAGIC sleep! O comfortable bird,
That broodest o’er the troubled sea of the mind
Till it is hush’d and smooth! O unconfined
Restraint! imprisoned liberty! great key
To golden palaces, unfamiliar as a result of being out of one's natural environment or not yet part of one's experience > Used in "World-Strangeness," #strange. [G] [Photo] minstrelsy,
Fountains fantasically bizarre > Used in "Sleep" from "Endymion," #grotesque. [G] [Photo], new trees, bespangled caves,
Echoing grottos, full of tumbling waves
And moonlight; ay, to all the mazy world
Of silvery enchantment! — who, upfurled
Beneath thy drowsy wing a triple hour,
But renovates and lives?

You can find my book on Amazon. >>> Sera is bored in the ancient village of Sleep. But, when a desperate deal gives her four fuzzy beans and far more than she bargains for, she discovers where personal responsibility lays in this stirring interpretation of a classic tale. You’ll chuckle and brush away a sneaky tear as you read If You Don’t Want to Go to Sleep, Close Your Eyes.
