Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson

(1850-1894 / Edinburgh / Scotland)

Ad Magistrum Ludi


NOW in the sky
And on the hearth of
Now in a drawer the direful cane,
That sceptre of the . . . reign,
And the long hawser, that on the back
Of Marsyas fell with many a whack,
Twice hardened out of Scythian hides,
Now sleep till the October ides.

In summer if the boys be well.

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
