A Child’s Thought ?

Listen to the lovely short children’s poem by Robert Louis Stevenson about bedtime! Do you also have such amazing dreams?

At seven, when I go to bed,
I find such pictures in my head:
Castles with dragons prowling round,
Gardens where magic fruits are found;
Fair ladies prisoned in a tower,
Or lost in an enchanted bower;
While gallant horsemen ride by streams
That border all this land of dreams
I find, so clearly in my head
At seven, when I go to bed.
