In the Room by James Thomson.

Part 9 of 13.

This long tirade

aroused the bed,
Who spoke in deep and ponderous bass,
Befitting that calm life he led,
As if firm-rooted in his place:
In broad majestic bulk alone,
As in thrice venerable age,
He stood at once the royal throne,
The monarch, the experienced sage:

I know what is and what has been;
Not anything to me comes strange,
Who in so many years have seen
And lived through every kind of change.
I know when men are good or bad,
When well or ill, he slowly said;
When sad or glad, when sane or mad,
And when they sleep alive or dead.

    All this talking has awakened the bed who is old and wise and who, when people sleep upon it, knows whether they are good or bad people, or healthy or sickly... and whether they are alive or dead...
