I know this precious poem by heart and it floats thru my mind this time of year as the sun sets later and later. I learned Stevenson's poems with my first baby in the early 80's. We didn't have black out shades then. We had the off white pull down shades; the shades that tap tap tapped in the breeze and had a crochet ring pull.
Sleepy sweaty babes in a glowing bedroom.
Not so very bad, really.
I encourage you to learn this...and share it with the little ones in your life.
Or just enjoy it yourself. I enjoy it regularly. *wink
