Heres a virtual movie of the Victorian English poet Edmund Gosse (1849 - 1928) readinghis exquisite,but almost forgotten poem "The Wallpaper" which was first published in 1889. Sir Edmund William Gosse CB (21 September 1849 -- 16 May 1928) was an English poet, author and critic; the son of Philip Henry Gosse and Emily Bowes. Edmund Gosse's father was a naturalist and his mother an illustrator and published a number of books of poetry. Both were deeply committed to a small Protestant sect, the Plymouth Brethren. His childhood was initially happy as they spent their summers in Devon where his father was developing the ideas which gave rise to the craze for the marine aquarium. After his mother died of breast cancer when he was eight and they moved to Devon, his life with his father became increasingly strained by his father's expectations that he should follow in his religious tradition. Gosse was sent to a boarding school where he began to develop his own interests in literature. His father married in 1860 the deeply religious Quaker spinster Eliza Brightwen (1813--1900), whose brother Thomas tried to encourage Edmund to become a banker He later gave an account of his childhood in the book Father and Son which has been described as the first psychological biography. At the age of 18 and working in the British museum in London, he broke away from his father's influence in a dramatic coming of age. Gosse started his career as assistant librarian at the British Museum from ...

I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band. ~George Cooper, "October's Party" "In the other gardens And all up the vale, From the autumn bonfies See the smoke trail!

Looking Glass River After the poem by Robert Louis Stevenson "Looking Glass River" is an intimate tone poem for piano inspired by the poem of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson. Like all good poetry, this poem could be interpreted in a number of ways, I chose to focus on the picture of a child, wandering by a river which fills his imagination." The sheet music can be purchased in digital format below for $2. tiny.cc Looking-glass River by Robert Louis Stevenson Smooth it glides upon its travel, Here a wimple, there a gleam-- O the clean gravel! O the smooth stream! Sailing blossoms, silver fishes, Pave pools as clear as air-- How a child wishes To live down there! We can see our colored faces Floating on the shaken pool Down in cool places, Dim and very cool; Till a wind or water wrinkle, Dipping marten, plumping trout, Spreads in a twinkle And blots all out. See the rings pursue each other; All below grows black as night, Just as if mother Had blown out the light! Patience, children, just a minute-- See the spreading circles die; The stream and all in it Will clear by-and-by.

Heres a virtual movie of the great Robert Louis Stevenson reading his much loved poem often performed as a song " The vagabond" .From "Songs of Travel and Other Verses", published in 1896. It is Meant to be sung "to an air of Schubert", Robert Louis Stevenson's verse - energetic, enthusiastic and exciting - isin many ways reminiscent of his prose, and like his prose, it's always funo read. Readers looking for profound insight or gut-wrenching emotion are likely to be disappointed; equally, though, readers looking for metricalfelicity and magical atmospherics are likely to be enchanted. Stevenson is a sort of mixture of Walter de la Mare and John Masefield: the former for his command of atmosphere, and the latter for his wanderlust. The romance of the open road plays a significant role inStevenson's writings, yet it's always tempered with a sense of the beauty of stillness, of silence. And while RLS cannot (in all honesty) hold a candleto either de la Mare or Masefield, in many respects he does not miss by: his poems rarely fail to capture the imagination, and, having captured it, to take it to places it's rarely seen before.

Jordan recites "My Shadow" by Robert Louis Stevenson at the 2010 Walker Charter Academy Kindergarten Poetry Cofeehouse - what a great job, Sugar! (and notice there really is a shadow in the background) :)
A poem I wrote about one of my favourite places, Calle de Baladres, the road between Sa Coma and Cala Millor, in Mallorca. The photographs in this video were taken at Calle de Baladres in October 2009, while on holiday. I have been on holiday to Sa Coma eleven times since 1998 and have always enjoyed this walk. My sanctuary is the road I close my eyes and there I walk Though years since I set foot upon No barrier prevents my swift return The wide expanse and the peace there found No irritants pacing, blocking my path I stop to savour and to reflect And smile at the journey still to come The woodland and the fields surround The hermit in his hideaway Is he like me, a lucky one Who cannot leave the road behind?
Heres a virtual movie of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) the Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer reading probably his best known poem "Requiem" First published in 1879. Fourteen years before his death, when he was very ill in California, Stevenson had composed "Requiem" his own epitaph: Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburghs New Town in 1850. He died 44 years later on a small Samoan island in the Pacific. During his short life he travelled the world, defied convention, and made himself one of the most famous writers of the 19th century. Robert Louis Stevenson was one of the most-read adventure novelists of the late 1800s. Among his most popular books were Kidnapped (1886), The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and Treasure Island (1883). The latter book features Stevenson's famous crafty pirate Long John Silver. Stevenson also published a much-loved book of poems, A Child's Garden of Verse (1885). Having suffered from tuberculosis for much of his life, Stevenson spent many years travelling in search of a climate that would suit his illness. He finally settled in Samoa, where he died in 1894 and is buried. Kind Regards Jim Clark All rights are reserved on this video recording copyright Jim Clark 2009 Requiem.............

Robert Louis Stevenson's excellent poem about love and life. Made with Imovie 06 and Garageband. This was shot in one of the few great locations we have in Canberra and sadly it's coming to an end, the Belconnen Bus Interchange. At least I was able to shoot one film there before it turns into nothing but rubble.
Sister Bear paraphrases Robert Louis Stevenson's poem "The Swing" as she pushes her friend Lizzy on a park swing. The poem was first published in Stevenson's collection "A Child's Garden of Verses" in 1885. Visit my channel for more films/TV shows that quote poetry. (No copyright infringement intended. I do not own the content of this video and make no money from it.) "The Swing" Robert Louis Stevenson How do you like to go up in a swing, Up in the air so blue? Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing Ever a child can do! Up in the air and over the wall, Till I can see so wide, River and trees and cattle and all Over the countryside-- Till I look down on the garden green, Down on the roof so brown-- Up in the air I go flying again, Up in the air and down!
This is me singing in my School of Music's Lied-class, 28th of February 2009. It's "Roadside Fire" and "Bright is the ring of Words" from the Songcycle "Songs of Travel" by english composer Vaughan WIlliams. Sung in original key, voice = baritone. The poems are by Robert Louis Stevenson - - - I will make you brooches and toys for your delight Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night, I will make a palace fit for you and me Of green days in forests, and blue days at sea. - I will make my kitchen, and you shall keep your room, Where white flows the river and bright blows the broom; And you shall wash your linen and keep your body white In rainfall at morning and dewfall at night. - And this shall be for music when no one else is near, The fine song for singing, the rare song to hear! That only I remember, that only you admire, Of the broad road that stretches and the roadside fire. - - - Bright is the ring of words When the right man rings them, Fair the fall of songs When the singer sings them. Still they are carolled and said -- On wings they are carried -- After the singer is dead And the maker buried. Low as the singer lies In the field of heather, Songs of his fashion bring The swains together. And when the west is red With the sunset embers, The lover lingers and sings And the maid remembers. I mixed up the first verses of "Bright is the ring of words", because I was so nervous. I'm so sorry ;-) Anyway, no one noticed ^^ have fun! (All rights belong to me. You ...
Robin Hendrix sings Ralph Vaughan Williams' beautiful ode to poets, and the ring of words they create. Michel Prezman accompanies on this performance recorded Oct 2008 in Holland. The poetry is by Robert Louis Stevenson, author of A Child's Garden of Verses, Treasure Island, and so many other great works. The poetry was written while Stevenson was taking a journey across the Cevennes of France, trying to make up his mind whether to marry an American divorcé, or to follow the dictates of his Scottish family, who could not tolerate such a match. Stevenson hired a donkey, and took nearly a year to journey through the French outback, so to speak, writing his memoires of the trip. The resulting book, Travels with a Donkey, and also the wonderful poetry that resulted, record his experiences and emotions of the trip, with its reasons and its results. The stars were incredible for him, and each night he was regaled by them. In Bright is the Ring of Words, he sings of the poet (singer) who writes the "songs", and that other swains will sing them long after the poet is dead. The lover lingers and sings the poems, and the maid remembers.
From "Songs Of Travel" (1895) The embers of the day are red Beyond the murky hill. The kitchen smokes; the bed In the darkling house is spread: The great sky darkens overhead, And the great woods are shrill. So far have I been led, Lord, by Thy will: So far I have followed, Lord, and wondered still. The breeze from the enbalmed land Blows sudden toward the shore, And claps my cottage door. I hear the signal, Lord - I understand. The night at Thy command Comes. I will eat and sleep and will not question more.

From "A Child's Garden of Verses" (1885) Great is the sun, and wide he goes Through empty heaven with repose; And in the blue and glowing days More thick than rain he showers his rays. Though closer still the blinds we pull To keep the shady parlour cool, Yet he will find a chink or two To slip his golden fingers through. The dusty attic spider-clad He, through the keyhole, maketh glad; And through the broken edge of tiles Into the laddered hay-loft smiles. Meantime his golden face around He bares to all the garden ground, And sheds a warm and glittering look Among the ivy's inmost nook. Above the hills, along the blue, Round the bright air with footing true, To please the child, to paint the rose, The gardener of the World, he goes.
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson read by David Shaw Parker produced by RNaudioproductions London Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Mr. Edward Hyde. The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality, split in the sense that within the same person there is both an apparently good and an evil personality each being quite distinct from the other. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was an immediate success and one of Stevenson's best-selling works. Stage adaptations began in Boston and London within a year of its publication and it has gone on to inspire scores of major film and stage performances.
