Treasure Island

Robert William Service

(16 January 1874 - 11 September 1958 / Preston)

(The sunshine seeks my little room)


The sunshine seeks my little room
To tell me Paris streets are gay;
That children cry the lily bloom
All up and down the leafy way;
That half the town is mad with May,
With flame of flag and boom of bell:
For Carnival is King to-day;
So pen and page, awhile farewell.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
