Transcript of Sleep by Annie Matheson (poem)

Sleep by Annie Matheson
SOFT silence of the summer night!
Alive with wistful murmurings,
Enfold me in thy quiet might:
Shake o’er my head thy slumb’rous wings,
So cool and light:
Let me forget all earthly things
In sleep to-night!

Hyperbole
"Let me forget all earthly things"

Tired roses, passionately sweet,
Are leaning on their cool green leaves,
The mignonette about my feet
A maze of tangled fragrance weaves,
Where dewdrops meet:
Kind sleep the weary world bereaves
Of noise and heat.

White lilies, pure as falling snow,
And redolent of tenderness,
Are gently swaying to and fro,
Lulled by the breath of evening less
Than by the low
Music of sleepy winds, that bless
The buds that grow.

From yon deep sky the quiet stars
Look down with steadfast eloquence,
And God the prison-door unbars
That held the mute world’s inmost sense
From all the wars
Of day’s loud hurry and turbulence;
And nothing now the silence mars
Of love intense.

quiet is a human behavior that stars
don’t do

The air is like a mother’s hand
Laid softly on a throbbing brow,
And o’er the darksome, dewy land
The peace of heaven is stealing now,
While, hand in hand,
Young angels tell the flowers how
Their lives are planned.
