A Poem My Kidlets Like~

February 20, 2007

 

Cats
Cats sleep
Anywhere
Any table
Any chair
Top of piano
Window ledge
In the middle
On the edge
Open drawer
Empty shoe
Any body’s
Lap will do
Fitted in a
Cardboard box
In the cupboard
With your frocks
Anywhere
THEY don’t care
Cats sleep
Anywhere

The faster you say this poem the funner it is. Enjoy~

A Poem By Robert Louis Stevenson

February 13, 2007

As from the house your mother sees
You playing round the garden trees,
So you may see, if you will look
Through the windows of this book,
Another child, far, far away,
And in another garden, play.
But do not think you can at all,
By knocking on the window, call
That child to hear you. He intent
Is all on his play-business bent.
He does not hear, he will not look,
Nor yet be lured out of this book.
For, long ago, the truth to say,
He has grown up and gone away,
And it is but a child of air
That lingers in the garden there.

Robert Louis Stevenson 

 

I came a cross this poem tonight and remember I had the book, A Child’s Garden of Verses in which this poem can be found. I think it’s a beautiful piece of writing. I hope someone enjoys it.
