Reading A Poem About A Bed in Summer By Robert Louis Stevenson

November 26, 2016
Let’s read a short poem. When days go darker, the air colder and the weather more humid than ever, it is time to remember what are the advantages of winter.
Bed in Summer by Robert Louis Stevenson
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
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or 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,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
