Come, Sleep, O Sleep, the certain knot of peace,

The baiting place of wit, the balm of woe,

The poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release,

The indifferent judge between the high and low;

With shield of proof shield me from out the prease[1]

Of those fierce darts despair at me doth throw;

O make in me those civil w

ars to cease:

I will good tribute pay, if thou do so.

Take thou of me sweet pillows, sweetest bed;

A chamber deaf to noise, and blind to light;

A rosy garland, and a weary head.

And if these things, as being thine by right,

Move not thy heavy grace, thou shalt in me,

Livelier than elsewhere, STELLA'S image see.
