• Even thus last night, and two nights more I lay,
    And could not win thee, Sleep, by any stealth:
    So do not let me wear to-night away.
    Without thee what is all the morning's wealth?
    Come, blessed barrier between day and day,
    Dear mother of fresh thoughts and joyous health!

    William Wordsworth (1848). “The Complete Poetical Works of William Wordsworth: Together with a Description of the Country of the Lakes in the North of England”, p.181
