A Good Child

Written by: Robert Louis Stevenson, Copyright: Public domain

I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day,
I never said an ugly word, but smiled a stuck to play.

And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood,
And I am very happy, for I know that I've been good.

My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair,
And I must off to sleep again, and not forget my prayer.

I know that, till tomorrow I shall see the sun arise,
No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes.

But slumber hold me tightly till I waken the dawn,
And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.
