Pursuit of Sleep

Our path is sleep's courtship.
The very young fight her;
The very old embrace her.
Between, unsatisfied, we chase her.

At last we seduce her.
Then once she is ours,
Can't we just be friends?
Comes a night that never ends.

William's Whimsical Words:

Now I lay me down to sleep . . . .
