Heavy lids that lure the mind
Against the manners of an educated kind
Healing sleep that seems soft and sublime
If I succumb what dangerous rest will I find?
Wish I could at peace absorb
Knowledge which my heart adores
Whispered deep into my core
Subconscious beast left to explore.
Stretching free without a care
A cat without a bed to share
With that precious time to spare,
I’d wander free from here to there.
Then hurry home again that day
To learn again the same lulled way.
