Poems of Sleep and Dreams | Peter Washington
1 post | 1 reading
Poets have always drawn inspiration from the wild fancies of dream life. We spend a third of our lives asleep, and throughout history our nocturnal visions have engaged the interpretive talents of our greatest writers. This treasury of poetsSidney, Donne, Blake, Keats, Wordsworth, Whitman, Rilke, Plath, Graves, Roethke, Bishop, Moore, Updike, and many moreencompasses lullabies, invocations, aubades, songs, epigrams, and stories, in every conceivable mood from the broadly comic to the tragic. It includes poems about daydreams and nightmares, about falling asleep and about waking up, about insomnia, night thoughts, monsters of the dark, twilight, dawn, and the rebirth of morning. From Audens Lullaby to Rossettis Nuptial Sleep, from Salvatore Quasimodos Insomnia to Thom Gunns Annihilation of Nothing,Poems of Sleep and Dreamsevokes the whole haunting, magical spectrum of sleep and dream.

I‘ve been having a hard going to sleep lately and a dear friend got me this little book on sleep poems. Hope ruminating over them before I go to bed helps me get some restful sleep. 💤 😴 Anyone have any other good reading/suggestions for a pre-bedtime routine? #sleepytime #poems #ineedsleep
