Robert Louis Stevenson

A Child's Garden of Verses

The 64 poems in «A Child’s Garden of Verses» are a masterly evocation of childhood from the author of «Treasure Island» and «Kidnapped». They are full of delightful irony, wit and the fantasy worlds of childhood imagination, and introduce for the first time the Land of Nod. But they are also touched with a genuine and gentle pathos at times as they recall a world which seems so far away from us now.

    The world is so full of a number of things,

    I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings

    A birdie with a yellow bill

    Hopped up on the window sill,

    Cocked his shining eye and said:

    'Ain’t you 'shamed, you sleepy–head?'
