An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Bed in Summer
By Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
 
From ‘Poems and Ballads’

IN winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
 
I have to go to bed and see        5
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Ot hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
 
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,        10
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
