From Breakfast on with all the dayAt home among my friends i stay,But every night ns go abroadAfar into the soil of Nod.All by myself I have to go,With none to tell me what come do--All alone next to the streamsAnd up the mountain-sides the dreams.The strangest things are there for me,Both things to eat and things to see,And plenty of frightening sights abroadTill morning in the land of Nod.Try together I like to discover the way,I never deserve to get ago by day,Nor have the right to remember plain and also clearThe curious music that ns hear.

When the grass was very closely mown,Walking top top the lawn alone,In the turf a hole i found,And hid a soldier underground.Spring and daisies came apace;Grasses hide my hiding place;Grasses run like a environment-friendly seaO"er the lawn approximately my knee.Under grass alone that lies,Looking up v leaden eyes,Scarlet coat and pointed gun,To the stars and also to the sun.When the grass is ripe choose grain,When the scythe is stoned again,When the lawn is shaven clear,Then my hole shall reappear.I shall find him, never fear,I shall uncover my grenadier;But for all that"s gone and come,I shall uncover my soldier dumb.He has actually lived, a small thing,In the grassy woods that spring;Done, if he could tell me true,Just as I have to like come do.He has seen the starry hoursAnd the springing the the flowers;And the fairy things that passIn the forests of the grass.In the quiet he has actually heardTalking bee and also ladybird,And the butterfly has flownO"er him as he put alone.Not a word will certainly he disclose,Not a native of all he knows.I have to lay that on the shelf,And make up the tale myself.

Black are my steps on silver sod; special blows mine frosty breath abroad; and also tree and also house, and also hill and lake, space frosted choose a wedding-cake.
