THE LOST FRIEND, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: All underneath the restless sea
Last Line: Dear robert louis stevenson.
Subject(s): Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850-1894)

ALL underneath the restless sea
Grief ran along a wire to me;
Children, your tender friend is gone—
Dear Robert Louis Stevenson.

With radiant smiles he reached his hands
To stroke the young of many lands;
Himself a man and boy in one—
Dear Robert Louis Stevenson.

Since he shall live on children's lips
In tales of treasure and of ships
What need to raise a tower of stone
For Robert Louis Stevenson?

Samoa nurses him in flowers,
For ever hers, for ever ours;
Incarnate tune, undying tone,
Dear Robert Louis Stevenson.
