    • POEM: A Good Boy by Robert Louis Stevenson (4/25/2010 10:21:00 AM)

      Just chanced upon this poem on here, and it almost made me cry. I chose this poem as an 8 or 9 year old at school to try to memorise and recite in a school assembly or something.

      It just reminds me of childhood innocence, and I remember really believing in this poem, and doing my best to live like this. This was back when I believed in the Catholic Church, of course. Oh, how I have changed since then, but I must always try and remember this poem, and keep trying to live this way.

      Beautiful, simple words, I love the last couplet, and I think I will read this to my kids each night before they go to sleep, as we have a lilac tree outside their bedroom window.

      Thank you, Mr Stevenson.
