A child's garden of verses/ by Robert Louis Stevenson
A very soothing book written by the author of Treasure Island. It is the book of verses told by a boy who is growing up observing the farm and the water, sand and ships in the poodle. He is fond of of the world; he is learning and awing the beauty of it.... One day he observes the work of the lamplighter and decides that "when i'm stronger and can choose what i'm to do, i'll go round at night and light lamps with you". Another day his imagination takes him afar into lands of the world, abroad. He sails there, or flies; always alone with "none to tell me what to do"
