Emily Dickinson

Sleep Is Supposed To Be

poem 13

Sleep is supposed to be By souls of sanity The shutting of the eye. Sleep is the station grand Down which, on either hand The hosts of witness stand! Morn is supposed to be By people of degree The breaking of the Day. Morning has not occurred! That shall Aurora be East of Eternity One with the banner gay One in the red array That is the break of Day!
