The Fame of English Literature : The Flowers by Robert Louis Stevenson (+ video)


 Have you ever been to the Magic Garden?

 I'm sure ,you were there when you were as small, as a rose bush. Then everything was different and you could see a tiny fairy and listen to her song.

The magic world is opened to us by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)  in his poem The Flowers.

 This Scottish writer is famous for his adventure novel  Treasure Island, but his poems from A Child's Garden of Verses are also amazing.

Hope, you'll read and enjoy this one





All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener’s garters, Shepherd’s purse,
Bachelor’s buttons,
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames—
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grown-up people’s trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all.
