Night_&_Sleep Evelyn de Morgan

For I am weary, and am overwrought
With too much toil, with too much care distraught,
And with the iron crown of anguish crowned.
Lay thy soft hand upon my brow and cheek,
O peaceful Sleep!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Painting by Evelyn de Morgan (30th August, 1855 – 2nd May, 1919)
