A NOTE IN PREFACE.

N part payment of kindly debt, I write this foreword to one or two of Mr. R. L. Stevenson's
loveliest child-songs, set to sweet and fitting music. Stevenson I am prepared to uphold at
all times, and writing upon any subject. 'I mark,' he wrote of some review article supposed by him
to be mine-' I mark your hand in the So-and-So, and am grieved with your monstrous ingratitude
in the matter of the "Foot-note to History,"'-meaning, I suppose, that this book had been dis-
criminated from the general meed of praise and objected to by the critic. But the reproach was
not mine. The article was written by some clansman less loyal than I. For to this day I am as
ready to stand an examination upon the relations of Malietoa and Matafaa and the misdeeds of
the Germans upon Samoa as on Allan himself, or upon the connexion of the superfluous honesty
of Jim Hawkins' mother with the Scotch school of philosophy.
I love the songs of the Child's Garden in the original diminutive quarto, with the little postage-
stamps of text set in the broad margins, as if at once childishly pleased to be out alone, and
afraid of losing their way in the wide world. I love them even where they seem somewhat less
at home-on the broad and honourable page of the Edinburgh edition, in the volume of verse upon
whose penultimate page is the Greeting which forms my only literary decoration. I love the quaint
extravagances of Mr. Robinson's daintily pictured version, though his little men and maids of
fairyland are like no bairns that ever played-' happy and lonely and good' by the mill-shadowed
gardens of the Water of Leith.
Most of all I like them, as here you have a few of them, and as I am sure their author would have
liked them-set to sweet rippling child-music by one who was but yesterday a child, sweet Mistress
Kitty Ramsay, and illustrated by his friend and mine, Mr. Gordon Browne. 'I must write a book
for Gordon Browne to illustrate,' he used to say; 'he always puts me in good humour with my
people.' Ah, happy artist! happy author! Too rare a combination in these bad days of drawings
at a guinea a-piece.

'I was always happiest when I played alone,' says our author in a letter. The confession
to a reader of the Garden was almost superfluous. The bigger-boned and rougher-natured of
us loved to storm triumphant through the noisy nursery or dominate the playground; but he, shy
Scholar Gipsy of seven, loved best 'the Playmate that never was seen,' to keep his vigil by the
lonely camp-fire behind the piano, 'to follow round the forest track;' or, most touching of all, the
lines which I can never read without the peak of lonely Vaea, where the gallant seeker after
adventures lies in his rest, shining up through a mist of tears-above the Road of the Loving
Heart.
it's I that am the captain of a tidy little ship-
Of a ship that goes a-sailing on the pond,
And my ship it keeps a-turning all around and all about;
But when I'm a little older I shall find the secret out,
How to send my vessel sailing on beyond.
it's then you'll see me sailing through the rushes and the reeds,
And you'll hear the water singing at the prow;
For beside the dolly sailor I'm to voyage and explore,
To land upon the island where no dolly was before,
And to fire the penny cannon in the bow.'











The last line somehow touches the hid spring of the secret chamber of my childish heart,
causing the door to open suddenly wide like the sliding panel on some chivalric wall-I know
not why, save that the finger of a master has touched the rusty lever.
Yes, I am sure he would have loved to see the muster of curly pates elbowing the piano, the
book of Song Flowers held open at the music of his own verses. I know not whether he would
most have delighted in the ripple of golden light trapped and held among the sunny hair, or
in the red lips of the choristers parted and innocent, as they chorus like dickey-birds their version
of his own ancient aspiration, now at last so fully realised-
'To land upon the island where no dolly was before,
And to fire the penny cannon in the bow.'

The light shines in, the keys are lightly touched (it must be lightly), so that the clear, childish
treble and the doubtfully syllabled words may be heard. Hark! how 'the light-heeled numbers
laughing go.' Again, after a pause, he sees again Leerie posting by with lantern and with ladder
down the chill and frosty Edinburgh street, in the early sunset of the North. Once.more he is
crawling reluctantly to bed, with the bogie shadows wheeling round and round, and over his other
shoulder phantoms' shapes are trying to blow the candle out upon the draughty stairs.
Nay, who knows but that through some angelic ear-trumpet it may be possible that in the
children's corner of Paradise, where, a blithe and interested onlooker, I am sure he often wanders
and sits and dreams, he may still hear the children sing as of old the wistful refrain-
'How far is it to Babylon ?
Can we get there by Candle-light '

If there be, indeed, another Child's Garden on these Elysian Fields, I am sure that he is not
seldom there, and I think that the children sing his songs. I can easily imagine him sitting and
writing them new ones. I can even fancy him teaching them to catch the rhyme. But there is
no under-sadness in them now-no echo of the 'Virgilian cry, the sense of tears in mortal
things.' For now at long and last-
'Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'
