Robert Louis Stevenson(1850-1894 / Edinburgh / Scotland)
A Good Boy
- by Robert Louis Stevenson131
I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day, I never said an ugly word, but smiled and stuck to play.
And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood, And I am very happy, for I know that I've been good.
My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair, And I must be off to sleepsin-by, and not forget my prayer.
I know that, till to-morrow I shall see the sun arise, No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes.
But slumber hold me tightly till I waken in the dawn, And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.
- by Robert Louis Stevenson110
It is very nice to think The world is full of meat and drink, With little children saying grace In every Christian kind of place.
