Illustration Poem- Bed in Summer by Robert Louis Stevenson

This was for a class project in ENGL 208 Children’s Literature, we were asked to select a poem for children or young adults and to “illustrate” it on the page to appeal to you readers

Bed in Summer

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
