Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise.
On the sounds of falling rain.
Sleep beautiful seed, sleep.
Care is heavy, therefore sleep you;
You are care, and care must keep you.
For you will soon be rising.
Sleep wonderful seed, sleep.
A variation on the lullaby "Golden Slumbers" written by the poet and dramatist, Thomas Dekker
Dormir = to sleep : dormant = lying asleep; latent; inactive
