Poems

  1. My Shadow
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
  2. The Hayloft
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Through all the pleasant meadow-side
    The grass grew shoulder-high,
  3. Marching Song
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Bring the comb and play upon it!
    Marching, here we come!
  4. The Unseen Playmate
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    When children are playing alone on the green,
    In comes the playmate that never was seen.
  5. The Swing
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    How do you like to go up in a swing,
    Up in the air so blue?
  6. Foreign Lands
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Up into the cherry tree
    Who should climb but little me?
  7. The Gardener
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    The gardener does not love to talk,
    He makes me keep the gravel walk;
  8. Bed in Summer
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    In winter I get up at night
    And dress by yellow candle-light.
  9. Keepsake Mill
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Over the borders, a sin without pardon,
    Breaking the branches and crawling below,
  10. My Bed is a Boat
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    My bed is like a little boat;
    Nurse helps me in when I embark;
  11. Nest Eggs
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Birds all the sunny day
    Flutter and quarrel
  12. Picture Books in Winter
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Summer fading, winter comes—
    Frosty mornings, tingling thumbs,
  13. Rain
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    The rain is raining all around,
    It falls on field and tree,
  14. Summer Sun
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Great is the sun, and wide he goes
    Through empty heaven without repose;
  15. The Cow
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    The friendly cow all red and white
    I love with all my heart:
  16. The Sun Travels
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    The sun is not a-bed, when I
    At night upon my pillow lie;
  17. The Wind
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    I saw you toss the kites on high
    And blow the birds about the sky;
  18. Time to Rise
    by Robert Louis Stevenson
    A birdie with a yellow bill
    Hopped upon my window sill,
