Silent Night

The Nightmare by Henry Fuseli (though I’ve always thought the incubus looks peeved because he can’t find a way in)

Silent Night

Dreams, come not and bother me tonight,
Tonight I have no time for dreams.
I am exhausted to the seams,
And need the black to snuff the white.
So do not follow in my deep,
To make me cry or hope or leap.
Tonight, I only wish to lie –
So let me lie, and only dream of sleep.
