Only one typo I caught, forgot the "l" in sleep in your description.
And actually, there's no need to state that this is your first poetry attempt. Any reviewer worth their salt isn't going to change what they have to say based on your experience writing. I think ommiting that part will only help add to the feel, because right now it interrupts any mood you try to set up with the title and body.
Very nice work. Keep it up.~Brit
