Sweet and low, sweet and low, Wind of the western sea, Low, low, breathe and blow, Wind of the western sea! Over the rolling waters go, Come from the dying moon, and blow, Blow him again to me; While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps. Sleep and rest, sleep and rest, Father will come to thee soon; Rest, rest, on mother's breast, Father will come to thee soon; Father will come to his babe in the nest, Silver sails all out of the west Under the silver moon: Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.Tennyson

The chain of young life is broken,The journey is ended, the hour has struck, it is time to leave,Time to go where there is no future,No past, no eternity, no years;Where there are no expectations, no passions,No bitter tears, no fame, no honour;Where memory sleeps deeplyAnd the heart in its narrow coffin homeDoes not feel the worm gnawing it.mikhail lermontov
The harp that once through Tara's hallsThe soul of music shed,Now hangs as mute on Tara's wallsAs if that soul were fled.So sleeps the pride of former days,So glory's thrill is o'er;And hearts that once beat high for praiseNow feel that pulse no more.thomas moore

Creation sleeps. 'Tis as the general pulse of life stood still, and nature made a pause.Edward Young
I think that if the beast who sleeps in man could be held down by threats of any kind, whether of jail or retribution, then the highest emblem of humanity would be the lion tamer, not the prophet who sacrificed himself.... What for centuries raised man above the beast is not the cudgel but the irresistible power of unarmed truth.Boris Pasternak
No pure delight cheers the farmer whose mind is intent on the price he shall get for his crops rather than on the joy there is in tilling them and seeing them grow and ripen: for such an one does not love the land nor his home nor any of the most beautiful and sacred things, but tends to become like the brute that eats and sleeps and dies. His thoughts are with what feeds the animal, and that which nourishes the human is hidden from him.john lancaster spalding
Till tired, he sleeps, and life's poor play is o'er.Alexander Pope
Hushed in the alabaster arms of Death, Our young Marcellus sleeps.
