BED HEAD, RED HEAD? BACK FROM THE DEAD



After a recent post revealed to the world my best bed-head bouffant, BSD reader Jorge memorialized the moment in this colorful portrait.  



O soft embalmer of the still midnight,
      Shutting, with careful fingers and benign,
Our gloom-pleas'd eyes, embower'd from the light,
      Enshaded in forgetfulness divine:
O soothest Sleep! if so it please thee, close
      In midst of this thine hymn my willing eyes,
Or wait the "Amen," ere thy poppy throws
      Around my bed its lulling charities.
Then save me, or the passed day will shine
Upon my pillow, breeding many woes,—
      Save me from curious Conscience, that still lords
Its strength for darkness, burrowing like a mole;
      Turn the key deftly in the oiled wards,
And seal the hushed Casket of my Soul.

"To Sleep" by John Keats

O Sleep!  The greatest stylist of them all

    I like that Jorge has preserved all those delicious freckles and the (honey)boo-boo on your forehead, which heretofore remains unexplained.
