Does Sleep she now, fair Nature’s friend,

At last upon this mortal man descend

With sweet diluted death to still the mind

So troubled, while angels downward bend

To shield him from horrors now left behind?

Lo, comes the dæmon of darkest night,

Fair Nature’s fiend and Sleep to fright

From the man of dust and poisoned blood,

And all the celestial host to put to flight,

Lest he the eyes of Peace in rest behold
