Of Sleep

Reproduction of ‘Sleep’, one of the most famous Nabis Style Oil Paintings painted by French artist Jean-Edouard Vuillard.

Tedium,
burdens my,
eyes,
like lead.

 

Views of,
A lamplit street
Fade,
From my head.

 
Softening shadows,
beckon me,
to,
my bed.

 

Sanctuary,
of mere feathers,
fabrics,
and thread.

 
The Seductress,
Sleep,
calls me,
to the dead.

 

I,
weary and lonely,
follow,
in its stead.
