'Tis the voice of the sluggard; I heard him complain,
'You have waked me too soon, I must slumber again'.
As the door on its hinges, so he on his bed,
Turns his sides and his shoulders and his heavy head.
The tall, the wise, the reverend head Must lie as low as ours.
Hush! my dear, lie still and slumber,
Holy angels guard thy bed!
Heavenly blessings without number Gently falling on thy head.
Quote of the day
It is true that men themselves made this world of nations... but this world without doubt has issued from a mind often diverse, at times quite contrary, and always superior to the particular ends that men had proposed to themselves.
