Origin of a phrase

Posted by Pat Jackman on January 05, 2003

Could anyone help me with this one. I remember it but have not been able to find where the original phrase comes from. I often say it to myself as 'I hit the pillow'.

"Come sweet slumber, enshroud me in thine purple cloak"

Any help would be appreciated as net searches have proved largely fruitless,

Kind Regards,

Pat Jackman.
