SLEEP FOR A LITTLE: Ancient Irish Poem

SLEEP FOR A LITTLE

dormi.1

Sleep for a little,
a very little while
and fear nothing.
Man to whom I have given my love
sleep here, deeply, deeply
I will watch over your rest.
My heart would break with grief
if I should ever lose sight of you.
To part us would be to exile
the body from the soul.
So sleep for a little while,
man to whom I have given my love
and fear nothing.
