    Excerpt from Moral Emblems: Other Poems

    I would have the reader see a little boy living in a chalet on a Swiss mountain-side, overlooking a straggling village named davos-platz, where consumptives coming to get well more often died. It was winter the sky-line was broken by frosty peaks; the hamlet - it was scarcely more then lay huddled in the universal snow. Morn ing came late, and the sun set early. A still, silent and icy night had an undue share of the round of hours, which at least it had the grace to mitigate by a myriad of shining stars.

    The little boy thought it was a very jolly place. He loved the tobogganing, the skating, the snow-balling; loved the crisp,tingling air, and the woods full of Christmas trees, glittering with icicles. Nor with his toy theatre and printing-press was the in door confinement ever irksome. He but dimly appreciated that his stepfather and mother were less happy in so favoured a spot. His mother's face was often anxious sometimes he would find her crying. His stepfather, whom he idolised, was terribly thin, and even to childish eyes looked frail and spectra]. The stepfather was an un successful author named Robert Louis Stevenson, who would never have got along at all had it not been for his rich parents in Edinburgh. The little boy at his lessons in the room which they all shared grew used to hearing a sentence that struck at his heart. Perhaps it was the tone it was uttered in perhaps the looks of discourage ment and depression that went with it.
