Finding rest

Have I forgotten how to rest?
The table is filled with books,
There is work left to do
Much study wearies the flesh

An ending is followed by a beginning
It only takes a moment before new tasks begin
Rest seems illusive
Perhaps the body forgets the meaning of the word

Yet rest does come
There is space for sleep
There is space for play
Tasks will be completed

The mind questions what will come next
The body is ready to complete its task
