Sleep comes creeping down the street | 07-Oct-11

Enquirer is looking for a poem her sister taught her about 50 years ago when they were children.  She thinks it is called "Sleep".  It begins:

Sleep comes creeping down the street
With her naked silent feet
Carrying upon her back
Dreams of all kinds in a sack
Though the doors are bolted still
She may enter where she will.


And ends:

Touches their pillows, strokes their curls
Happy little boys and girls.
