An Acre of Sleep – NaPoWriMo
Apr 5th, 2010 by Entropy

Here’s a villainous villanelle by – a sleepless – Entropy:

Grant me an acre of sleep to fill this yawning night
and plant the seeds of peace within that land
to grow a crop of dreams to veil dawn’s early light.

From deserts which descend from mountain’s height,
great dunes of shattered rocks worn down to sand,
grant me an acre of sleep to fill this yawning night

The firefly sparked the woodland dell alight
and scorched the space the night owl would command
to grow a crop of dreams to veil dawn’s early light

In nightmare jagged canyons where reality takes fright
from wind-carved shapes my mind can’t understand:
Grant me an acre of sleep to fill this yawning night!

My lands are falling fallow in restless blight,
as powerless as the barren salted strand
to grow a crop of dreams to veil dawn’s early light.

Dull landscape shifts in drifts of morning white;
from icy wind-scoured wastes my weary eyes demand:
Grant me an acre of sleep to fill this yawning night,
to grow a crop of dreams to veil dawn’s early light.
