0 I27 0 Shooing Morpheus on a Winter Morning O genTIe Sleep-whaT a conTrary-minded individual she is! You crawl inTo bed aTTer a hard day and summon her To obIiTeraTe your cares: insTead, she TIiTs TanTaIizingIy abouT The viciniTy, and no maTTer how much you Toss and Turn, you can'T Iay your hands on her. Comes The dawn, when you'd like To be able To bounce OuT OT bed Tull OT IiTe and enThusiasmg buT now The Tickle wench sees TiT To perch herselT aTop your recumbenT Trame and creaTe The impression ThaT you are supporTing a Thousand pound weighT wiTh your anaTomy. In addiTion, she squeezes a Tew drops oT some sorT OT eITin glue under your eyelids, and aTTer ThaT The blessed Things won'T open iT you pry Them up wiTh a screwdriver. I know whereOT I speak. Such has been my biTTer experience on many a winTer morn. Awakened by my own privaTe alarm clock-The Tamily poodle, who sleeps in The kiTchen direcTly beneaTh my room-I baT my eyes a couple OT Times and realize, aTTer a Tull minuTe or more, ThaT I am now back on earTh, exTradiTed Trom The TanTasTic dream- land in which German verbs chase IogariThms around a magneTic Tield Tor The amuse- menT OT ThaT preTTy girl who siTs nexT To The Teacher's desk in French class. Easy enough To wake up, buT whaT an enTireIy diTTerenT aTTair is geTTing upl Though The bed is warm, I shiver pessimisTicaIly as I observe The window curTains billowing inward like The sails oT a windiammer in The Trigid gale ThaT sweeps in over The snow-covered rooT oT The back porch. IT now occurs To me To wonder if my nose is where I hope iT is: I Timidly bring TorTh a hand Trom beneaTh The quiITs and apply iT in an expIoraTory manner To my Tace. Yes, The proboscis is sTilI There, buT badly in need OT a good Thawing OuT. I plunge The hand hasTiIy beneaTh The covers once more, muTTering murderous imprecaTions againsT a cerTain Tour-TooTed animal. Why couIdn'T The muTT IeT me go on sleeping? IT's so pIeasanT To dream abOuT-IogariThmsI WhaT's This? The curTain Tells Iimpl The breeze has died down: now is my chancel CauTiousIy, I drag boTh arms ouT Trom Their warm sancTuary: Then, always keeping an anxious eye on The curTain, whose sIighTesT TluTTer causes my hearT To TIuTTer Too, I sTeaIThiIy inch my way OuT OT The proTecTing bed and gingerly place my unclad TeeT upon The unwarmed Tloor. Recovering Trom This iniTiaI shock, I now advance hasTiIy upon The open window: buT my hasTe is nOT suTTicienT. There is a "WhooshI" OT air, The cur- Tains Tly up aImos+ To The ceiling, and a paralyzing bIasT OT cold hiTs me like an ocean wave breaking over an unwary baTher. STrange how wide-awake I Teel nowl VibraTing like a pneumaTic drill, I slam down The window and make a dive Tor The pile OT cIOThes on The chair over in The Tar corner. Ay, sleep has been puT To TIighT, buT aT whaT a price! You may Talk OT your soldiers, your aviaTors, or even your deep-sea divers? buT Tor real bravery, give me The men like Commander Byrd, who dared The wraTh OT The AnT- arcTic. They are The heroes: I knowl ' n Christian Meyer. The Hokku lAn Impressionl Ivory Tracings DelicaTeIy TinTed silk, Tapering Tingers. Elizabeth Gips
