On Sleep

A friend just sent me a Lawrence poem called "Shadows" and the first four lines describe my present state of mind precisely. And on that indeterminate note, I'm off for some oblivion...

And if tonight my soul may find her peace
in sleep, and sink in good oblivion,
and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower
then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created.

~D.H. Lawrence
