Creative Sleep
By
Stella M. Turk MBE

 

Creative sleep

 



“Sleep which knits the unravelled sleeve of care” Shakespeare

Sleep, sleep, beautiful sleep

May it be long, and may it be deep.

We need eight hours

To keep our powers.

Sleep and dream

Help to redeem

And then to sort

The process of thought.

It may also unwind

Any puzzles in mind.

 

 

 

Authors notes

Creative sleep“When we dream, we’re busy exploring the links between old and new memories, which may help explain how we can sometimes solve problems in our sleep”. The conclusion is that we need eight hours to learn properly”

A quote from Helen Phillips ‘Perchance to learn’ New Scientist No. 2205 pages 27-30 (1999).
