The Land of Counterpane by Robert Louis Stevenson


When I was sick and lay a-bed, I had two pillows at my head, And all my toys beside me lay, To keep me happy all the day. 



And sometimes for an hour or so I watched my leaden soldiers go, With different uniforms and drills, Among the bed-clothes, through the hills; 



And sometimes sent my ships in fleets All up and down among the sheets; Or brought my trees and houses out, And planted cities all about. 



I was the giant great and still That sits upon the pillow-hill, And sees before him, dale and plain, The pleasant land of counterpane.
