Dark brown is the river, Golden is the sand. It flows along forever, With trees on every hand. Green leaves a-floating, Castles of the foam, Boats of mine a-boating— Where will all come home? On goes the river And out past the mill, Away down the valley, Away down the hill. Away down the river, A hundred miles or more, Other little children Shall bring my boats ashore. —ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON To the Ladybird Ladybird, ladybird! fly away home! The fieldmouse has gone to her nest, The daisies have shut up their sleepy red eyes, And the bees and birds are at rest.
RICHARDS A Sand Castle The tide is out, and all the strand Is glistening in the summer sun; Let's build a castle of the sand— Oh! will not that be glorious fun? With walls and outworks wide and steep, All round about we'll dig a moat, And in the midst shall be the keep, Where England's flag may proudly float. And where a drawbridge ought to be, We'll make a causeway to the shore, Well paved with stones, for you and me To get to land when tempests roar. We'll sit within our citadel, And watch the tide come o'er the rocks; But we have built it strong and well; It will not fall for common shocks.
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Under the Greenwood Tree Under the greenwood tree, Who loves to lie with me, And tune his merry note Unto the sweet bird's throat— Come hither, come hither, come hither: Here shall he see No enemy But winter and rough weather. Who doth ambition shun, And loves to lie i' the sun, Seeking the food he eats, And pleased with what he gets, Come hither, come hither, come hither: Here shall he see No enemy But winter and rough weather. —WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Discontent Down in a field, one day in June, The flowers all bloomed together, Save one, who tried to hide herself, And drooped, that pleasant weather.
