14A The MounJpain Messenger, Thursday, May 31, 1990 Robert Louis Stevenson, one of my favorite writers, wrote far more about gardens than he did mon- sters. He is as well-remembered for A Child's Garden of Verses as he is for Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. In fact, his book of poetry is more for adults who miss the innocent fun of their youth than it is for children who are still able to live on earth instead of in their heads. One of his poems from A Child's Garden of Verses speaks of how he learned the names of the flowers and what the garden meant to him. Stevenson is not so sophisticated that he can't recall the child's imagi- nation that can create a palace out of a leafy bower or turn a broken branch into a magic wand. Steven- son merges the flowers and the fair- ies of his youth into a romantic memory about the purity of youth. The Flowers All the names I know from nurse: Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse, Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock, and the Lady Hollyhock, Fairy WOODS where the wild bee winqs, Tiny trees for tiny dames -- These must all be fairy names! Tiny woods below whose boughs Shady fairies weave a house; Tiny tree4ops, rose or thyme, Where the braver fairies climb! Fair are grown-up people's trel~s, But the fairest woods are these; Where if I were not so tall, I should live for good and all. Fairy places, fairy things, i ullnl = , i = - WHAT YOU DO IS NEWS TO US Sometimes on singing blue June days I can get there. I can float out on the summer breeze into en- chanted kingdoms fragrant with flowers and kindness. Sometimes I can wander the yard without a care and call the names of my flowers aloud. Hello bachelor's buttons. Hello Lady Hollyhock. I call their names like Stevenson in a tone mixed with reverence and familiarity. I greet them as i make my rounds, pulling off a yellow leaf here, a dead flower head there. I make a bouquet as I go and think to myself as I stroll that if I were not so tall I too should live for good and all.
