The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner

Part V

"Oh sleep! it is a gentle thing,
Beloved from pole to pole!
To Mary Queen the praise be given!
She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven,
That slid into my soul.

The silly buckets on the deck,
That had so long remained,
I dreamt that they were filled with dew;
And when I awoke, it rained.

My lips were wet, my throat was cold,
My garments all were dank;
Sure I had drunken in my dreams,
And still my body drank.

I moved, and could not feel my limbs:
I was so light--almost
I thought that I had died in sleep,
And was a blessed ghost.


Verbatim

Conversely...

Tonight, however much I’ll try,
The sleep will miss me by a mile.
Idle thought, still on my mind
Like a rhyme that’s hard to find.

"Well, yes" is the initial thought. But as beloved as it is, we still regularly neglect it. We know sleep deprivation is terrible, but it is widespread. It seems we don't have enough hours in the day.

"The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late." - Charles Caleb Colton
