1264. “Sleep and His Brother Death”
 
By William Hamilton Hayne
 
 
JUST ere the darkness is withdrawn,
  In seasons of cold or heat,
Close to the boundary line of Dawn
  These mystical brothers meet.
 
They clasp their weird and shadowy hands,        5
  As they listen each to each,
But never a mortal understands
  Their strange immortal speech.
