Under the Window. Pictures & Rhymes for Children. Written and illustrated by Kate Greenaway. George Routledge & Sons., London . First edition. first issue.
Under the window is my garden,
Where sweet, sweet flowers grow;
And in the pear-tree dwells a robin,
The dearest bird I know.
Tho’ I peep out betimes in the morning,
Still the flowers are up the first;
Then I try and talk to the robin,
And perhaps he’d chat—if he durst.
