GARDEN DAYS: 3. THE FLOWERS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: All the names I know from nurse
Last Line: I should live for good and all.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Flowers


All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames --
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grown-up people's trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all.
