A Child's Garden of Verses free pdf Excerpt from A Child's Garden of Verses Almost any day in the winter of 1880-81 there might have been seen crouched upon the attic floor of a certain chalet in the little Swiss town of Davos, a boy of perhaps twelve years of age and a man of thirty, playing with an army of tin soldiers! The attic was cold and poorly lighted and in places the eaves were so low that the two could not stand upright, but so absorbing was their occupation that neither had a thought for these discomforts. On the board floor a map was roughly drawn in colored crayons, on which were indicated mountains and rivers, towns, roads, and bridges, and the tin soldiers were marched here and there in a fascinating game that sometimes lasted for several weeks at a time, and which with the players went by the name of war. The manor, rather, the elder boy, for he never quite grew up was Robert Louis Stevenson, and the absorbing game was his invention, its object the entertainment of his companion and stepson, Lloyd Osbourne. It is Mr. Osbourne himself who gives us this charming picture of boyhood days long past, when the Stevensons, for health's sake, had made their winter home in the little house in the mountains. He tells us, too, of the work with the toy press, on which were printed reports of the battles fought in the attic, as well as various periodicals of which he was the editor and publisher, while his playmate-father, in spite of his burden of ill health and the pressure of real work, was a regular contributor as writer and artist.
