It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.
Great Thought Indeed.
It is a poem of his time and not suitable for a all times to read appreciate! He is not much remembered for his poems and appreciated other than his novel, The Treasure Island!
I like how pretentious everyone is on this site. It seriously makes me laugh every day I come here. (See, I understand irony!)
Anyway, the poem is a thought, thought by a man who thought quite a lot. (I'm still doing it!) If he meant for it to be ironic, he didn't do a great job of getting that across. If it's just a thought, well... then it's just a thought.
thought provoking, hm
There is no evidence whatsoever that this poem is an ironical plea for the hungry of the world. It comes from A Child's Garden of Verses written for his childhood nurse and when Stevenson was a staunch conservative.
My Grammie had a family baby cup engraved with my name on it with this poem and i was to pass it down to my granddaughter but my mother gave it to my neice instead. Trying to find another one now.
Very much British kind of poem. Graceful and direct.
That is the worst thing to hear a Robotic delivery just Ruins the whole soul of this poem
Great thoughts and messages to the world in brief poem and it is so beautiful.
