I would not a bit mind sleeping in the cool grass in summer, and when winter came on sheltering myself by the warm close-thatched rick, or under the penthouse of a great barn, provided I had love in my heart.
Oscar Wilde Suite
Sleep sweetly, tender heart, in peace;
Sleep, holy spirit, blessed soul,
While the stars burn, the moons increase,
And the great ages onward roll.
Sleep till the end, true soul and sweet.
Nothing comes to thee new or strange,
Sleep full of rest from head to feet:
Lie still, dry dust, secure of change.
Alfred Lord Tennyson suite sitting room
Of all the thoughts of God that are Borne inward unto souls afar, Along the Psalmist's music deep, Now tell me if that any is. For gift or grace, surpassing this-- He giveth His beloved sleep.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Look into your own heart because who looks outside, dreams, but who looks inside awakes.
Jane Austen suite window seat
Is this is a dream? O, if it be a dream, Let me sleep on, and do not wake me yet!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Longfellow canopy bed
And dreams in their development have breath, And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy; They have a weight upon our waking thoughts, They take a weight from off our waking toils, They do divide our being.
Lord Byron canopy bed
What is the beginning? Love. What is the course? Love still. What the goal? The goal is love.
