;Here The speaker is really tired. He hasn't been feeling too good as there's a civil war inside of him and he wants Sleep to help him out a little bit.And thenSidney personifies sleep and begins to have a conversation with it. He prays that Sleep will come and release him from his current misery. Only when he is asleep is he able to ease his suffering and stem the civil war that is waging between his heart and his head, between his love and his reason.He wonders what price he must pay in order to convince the god of Sleep to come to him,then, He spends a few lines talking about all the good things Sleep does, before trying to bribe him with some cool gifts as he promises a "good tribute." Smooth pillows, a comfortable bed, and a dark,sleeping chamber, quiet room are all that he desires, if only he can persuade Sleep to come. . If Sleep isn't interested in those things, however, he can look inside the speaker and see an image of the beautiful Stella Finally, Sidney comes up with a way to convince Sleep to come to him. When he is asleep, he argues, the image of Stella will appear in his dreams, and Sleep will be able to watch. This is the greatest tribute that he can pay. Perhaps that'll convince him..
We're gonna go ahead and say this poem takes place in a bedroom somewhere—you know, pillows, a bed, "a chamber deaf to noise"?
But there's more to the setting of this poem than just an awesome four-post bed. The speaker talks a lot about his feelings and emotions ("civil wars in me," "weary head") and implicitly encourages us to get inside his head a little bit. While this isn't one of those brooding, emo poems, a good part of what happens in "Come Sleep! O Sleep" takes place in the speaker's heart, so to speak, the battleground of emotion.

Sir Philip Sidney (30 November 1554 – 17 October 1586) was an English poet, courtier, and soldier, who is remembered as one of the most prominent figures of the Elizabethan age. The reign of the Elizabeth I began in 1558 and ended with her death in 1603. Therefore, the second half of the 16th century bear her name,
the Elizabethan age.Elizabethan writers
of higher rank, like Sir Philip Sidney, thought of
themselves as courtiers,statemen,landowners; they considered poetry a social grace and a courtlypastime.
His works include Astrophel and Stella which includes 108 sonnets and 11 songs
, The Defence of Poesy, and The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia.
In this poem Sidney is talking about two characters which are ;
1) Astrophel is the protagonist of the poem, a man modeled after Sir Philip Sidney.
2) Stella is the heroine of the poem and the object of Astrophel's desire.
Astrophel is attracted to a married woman and tries in vain to pursue her. He experiences a range of emotions.
Astrophel is an example of a man who lets his emotions get the better of him, something that was nearly unforgivable for an established courtier during the time when Sidney was writing the sonnet sequence. His inability to control his emotions eventually leads him to total despair and the loss of Stella forever.
On the other hand, however, as a star, Stella is just one of a million other stars in the skies. She is not unique or, perhaps, not even worthy of Astrophel's attention Not only is she beautiful, but she also is intelligent and rational. When she begins to return Astrophel's love, she refuses to allow her emotions to overcome her reason. She recognizes that their love cannot exist and that she must guard herself. So this love can't come over .
