One of the most romantic minds of all times.
(from Wiki) Stevenson had always wanted his 'Requiem' inscribed on his tomb: '' Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be; Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill. '' - However, the piece is MISQUOTED in many places, including his tomb: Home is the sailor, home from THE sea, And the hunter home from the hill.
awesome person awesome poems
It is right to see such a gentle man look harsh, because he has trodden down and known so much of a harsh world in order to command that visage in life. A goodly poet
