Where go the boats?

As a young girl I spent many hours with a book called A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson.   I still have the book, now 60 years old. My selection is” Where Go the Boats”.  Click on any image for a larger view.

Golden is the sand.
It flows along forever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam.
Boats of mine a-boating,
Where will all come home?

the Grist MillOn goes the river,
and out past the mill.
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.
