Quotes tagged “Sleep”
I don't worry and I don't weep. In fact I'm glad.
Because I get up off my pillow and I flip on the light.
I get down and get hip in the still of the night I stretch and I yawn and then I breathe real deep
And dance myself to sleep.
I hoof around my beddie just a-tappin' my toes
Before I know what's happened I'm a-ready to doze
Got some partners I can count the boogie-woogie sheep
I dance myself to sleep.”
I slept like a log last night.
I woke up in the fireplace.”
Weighs heavily on me like unwilling sleep,
And each imagin'd pinnacle and steep
Of godlike hardship tells me I must die
Like a sick Eagle looking at the sky.”
Death and his brother Sleep!”
Not screaming in panic like the passengers of her car.”
Shall fall awake when cures and their itch Raise up this red-eyed earth?”
