In winter I get up at night / And dress by yellow candle-light. more
In this illustration a small child, probably a girl, stands barefoot by a bed lit by the yellow glow of a candle; she is in the process of getting dressed in the dark, by the light of the candle.
I. Bed in Summer
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
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?
