“My Bed Is a Boat” — Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. I love the collection, but this is my favorite:

    In winter I get up at night
    And dress by yellow candle-light.
    In summer, quite the other way,
    I have to go to bed by day.

    I have to go to bed and see
    The birds still hopping on the tree,
    Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
    Still going past me in the street.

    And does it not seem hard to you,
    When all the sky is clear and blue,
    And I should like so much to play,
    To have to go to bed by day?

  2. Lovely. Could you post the details of the book? I think it is Stevenson’s “A Child’s Garden of Verses,” but what publisher, year, and illustrator?
