Sonnet, To Sleep Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Son of the silent dark and humid NightB
Consoler of the wretched by whose swayC
The gloomy train of ills are put to flightB
That blacken Life's uncertain tedious dayC
O succour now this restless pining heartD
Give to these feeble weary limbs reposeE
Fly to me Sleep and let thy sombre wingsF
Over my couch their dusky plumes discloseE
O where is Silence who avoids the lightB
Where the wild dreams that flutter in thy trainG
Alas in vain I call thee cruel NightB
And flatter these insensate shades in vainG
And oh without thy cheering dews are shedH
How full of hardships is the downy bedH
