    One of my favorite poets is Robert Louis Stevenson(1850-1894). He was born in Scotland, married and moved to America. He wrote stories and studied law as well as wrote beautiful poetry. Despite his short life span his collection of poems is enormous, but one of my favorites is-
    The Flowers by Robert Louis Stevenson
    All the names I know from nurse:
    Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
    Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
    And the Lady Hollyhock.

    Fairy places, fairy things,
    Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
    Tiny trees for tiny dames--
    These must all be fairy names!

    Tiny woods below whose boughs
    Shady fairies weave a house;
    Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
    Where the braver fairies climb!

    Fair are grown-up people's trees,
    But the fairest woods are these;
    Where, if I were not so tall,
    I should live for good and all.
