A GOOD PLAY

Font Size
We built a ship upon the stairs,

All made of the back-bedroom chairs,

And filled it full of sofa pillows

To go a-sailing on the billows.
We took a saw and several nails,

And water in the nursery pails;

And Tom said, "Let us also take

An apple and a slice of cake";

Which was enough for Tom and me

To go a-sailing on, till tea.
We sailed along for days and days,

And had the very best of plays;

But Tom fell out and hurt his knee,

So there was no one left but me.
 
By Robert Louis Stevenson
