Lucka 9

A house is not a home unless it contains food
and fire for the mind as well as the body.
0000000000000000000000 Margaret Fuller

Fairy Tales (picture-books), by George Harcourt, 1868-1948


Summer fading, winter comes —
Frosty mornings, tingling thumbs,
Window robins, winter rooks,
And the picture story-books.

Water now is turned to stone
Nurse and I can walk upon;
Still we find the flowing brooks
In the picture story-books.

All the pretty things put by,
Wait up on the children's eye,
Sheep and shepherds, trees and crooks,
In the picture story-books

We may see how all things are,
Seas and cities, near and far,
And the flying fairies' looks,
In the picture story-books.

How am I to sing your praise,
Happy chimney-corner days,
Sitting safe in nursery nooks,
Reading picture story-books?

00000000 Robert Louis Stevenson
