Going to Sleep

Now that the day wearies me,
My yearning desire,
Will receive more kindly
Like a tired child, the starry night

Hence, leave off your deeds
mind, forget all thoughts
All of my forces
Yearn only to sink into sleep.

And my soul, unguarded,
Would soar on widespread wings,
To live in a night’s magical sphere
more profoundly, more variously.
by Herman Hesse
