~ Billy Joel

“As a fond mother, when the day is o’er,/ Leads by the hand her little child to bed,/ Half willing, half reluctant to be led,/ And leave his broken playthings on the floor,/ Still gazing at them through the open door,/ Nor wholly reassured and comforted/ By promises of others in their stead,/ Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;/ So nature deals with us, and takes away/ Our playthings one by one, and by the hand/ Leads us to rest so gently, that we go/ Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,/ Being too full of sleep to understand/ How far the unknown transcends the what we know.”

                     Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
