Sleepy Time – The City of Sleep ~ Rudyard Kipling

Sleepy Time – The City of Sleep ~ Rudyard Kipling

More and more of us go to bed too late because of sleep procrastination. What are the nighttime rituals that keep you up before finally dozing off?

The best I can do for this prompt is to lay out a part of this lovely poem by Kipling:

The City of Sleep

"Over the edge of the purple down,
  Where the single lamplight gleams,
Know ye the road to the Merciful Town
  That is hard by the Sea of Dreams --
Where the poor may lay their wrongs away,
  And the sick may forget to weep?
But we -- pity us! Oh, pity us!
  We wakeful; ah, pity us! --
We must go back with Policeman Day --
  Back from the City of Sleep!" (See more here).

If I can’t sleep I watch a movie or series episode, which does the trick.
