In the Nower

In the Nower

To J. De P.

Deep in the grass outstretched I lie,
Motionless on the hill;
Above me is a cloudless sky,
Around me all is still:

There is no breath, no sound, no stir,
The drowsy peace to break:
I close my tired eyes it were
So simple not to wake.

Poem In the Nower - Amy Levy
