Morning Will Be Time Enough for Sleep
Music: Mathis der Maler: 2nd Movement (Grablegung).
By Paul Hindemith. Sequenced by David Siu at Kunst der Fuge.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Morning will be time enough for sleep.
A person needs to revel now and then,
Returning home from passion only when
Daylight makes the ecstasy look cheap.
In sensuality there is much sense,
Gift of gods assigned to procreation.
Revelry can lead to revelation
As one for once ignores the consequence,
Selfless in the sanctum of sensation.
