SLEEP UNTIL TOMORROW
dadepfan

Sleep until tomorrow
 1
The wind will come again
 2
The leaves will fall tomorrow
 3
And bless the ground again
 4
 
 
Your eyes can see the distance
 5
A blue and golden haze
 6
Your mind can feel behind you
 7
The trail of all your days
 8
 
 
You can't remember your birth
 9
And you can't conceive your death
 10
You forget the days you've had
 11
And wish you had more left
 12
 
 
Sleep until tomorrow
 13
Then you'll sail away
 14
The leaves will fall tomorrow
 15
and cover up the day
 16

This poem was written while I was in a philosophical, and slightly depressed, mood. I was contemplating life, aging, human nature, and death, but in a peaceful way. This remains one of my favorite poems.

A nice poem. Very lyrical, however the flow was interrupted in the 3rd quatrain which stopped it up a bit by the somewhat awkward change in rhythm.

I especially like the last quatrain. Beautiful wording.
