Dark Sky

Dark brown is the river. 
Golden is the sand. 
It flows along for ever, 
With trees on either hand.


Green leaves a-floating, 
Castles of the foam, 
Boats of mine a-boating— 
Where will all come home?


On goes the river 
And out past the mill, 
Away down the valley, 
Away down the hill.


Away down the river, 
A hundred miles or more, 
Other little children 
Shall bring my boats ashore.

-Robert Louis Stevenson | 1850 - 1894
