A Child's Garden of Verses.
A Child's Garden of Verses is a collection of poetry for children by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, a collection that concerns childhood, illness, play, and solitude. The collection first appeared in 1885 under the title Penny Whistles, but has been reprinted many times, often in illustrated versions. It contains about 65 poems, including "Foreign Children", "The Lamplighter," "The Land of Counterpane", "Bed in Summer", "My Shadow", and "The Swing".
A Child’s Garden of Verses is a book of poetry for children. Stevenson dedicated the poems to his nurse Cummy (Alison Cunningham), who cared for him during his many childhood illnesses. The collection includes some of Stevenson’s most famous poems, including The Land of Counterpane, My Shadow and The Lamplighter. In Pirate Story, for example, the garden becomes the setting for pirate adventure. The Land of Nod describes the dream land that children can only visit when they are asleep. Some of the poems, particularly those in The Child Alone section evoke the loneliness of being young, ill and without companions (certainly Stevenson was here remembering his own childhood). Children in these poems (for example The Unseen Playmate. My Ship and I, and My Kingdom ) use their imaginations to entertain themselves, rather than the company of a friend.

Robert Louis Stevenson was born November 13, 1850 in Edinburgh, Scotland, the only son of respectable middle-class parents. For all you pitied, all you bore, In sad and happy days of yore:-My second Mother, my first Wife, The angel of my infant life-From the sick child, now well and old, Take, nurse, the little book you hold! And grant it, Heaven, that all who read May find as dear a nurse at need, And every child who lists my rhyme, In the bright, fireside, nursery clime, May hear it in as kind a voice As made my childish days rejoice! Robert Louis Stevenson.
