did you ever read the poem by Robert Louis Stevenson? It is called "Bed In Summer"
In winter I get up by night, and have to dress by candlelight,
In Summer, quite the other way, I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see the birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people's feet, Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you, When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play, To have to go to bed by day?
Robert Louis Stevenson.
I love his children's poems.
