Before This Little Gift Was Come

Written by: Robert Louis Stevenson | Biography
 | Quotes (139) |
 BEFORE this little gift was come
The little owner had made haste for home;
And from the door of where the eternal dwell,
Looked back on human things and smiled farewell.
O may this grief remain the only one! O may our house be still a garrison Of smiling children, and for evermore The tune of little feet be heard along the floor!
