Sleep is supposed to be

Sleep is supposed to be

Sleep is supposed to be
By souls of sanity
The shutting of the eye.

Sleep is the station grand
Down which, on either hand
The hosts of witness stand!

Morn is supposed to be
By people of degree
The breaking of the Day.

Morning has not occurred!

That shall Aurora be
East of Eternity
One with the banner gay
One in the red array
That is the break of Day!



Poem Sleep is supposed to be - Emily Dickinson
