Poetry Friday: Falling Asleep by Siegfried Sassoon
Current Mood: awake
Current Song: NCIS score music
Waiting for sleep, I drift from thoughts like these;
And where to-day was dream-like, build my dreams.
Music ... there was a bright white room below,
And someone singing a song about a soldier,
One hour, two hours ago: and soon the song
Will be 'last night': but now the beauty swings
Across my brain, ghost of remembered chords
Which still can make such radiance in my dream
- from Falling Asleep by Siegfried Sassoon
