The sleeping lady of Malta

 She lies here in repose 
a reverie of gargantuan proportions

Dusk settles, her day of work is done 
She takes her meal and stretches out
 on this slab of cold hard stone 

She doesn't mind one bit though 
she is rather hot and it will be another clement night 

She is tired and there is much work awaiting her tomorrow
