Do Fish Ever Sleep?


Dr Abe V. Rotor
Oscar carp in a home aquarium. Lagro, QC (c2010)

Have you wondered if fish ever sleep?
Unless by sleep they remain still
In some quiet pool, like flocks of sheep,
After their fill, lie on a grassy hill.

 Other creatures gain this way their ease,
And man by the power of his will
Takes the long and winding road for peace;
         But where’s that quiet pool or grassy hill?
