Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
  
41. Farewell to the Farm

THE COACH is at the door at last; 
The eager children, mounting fast 
And kissing hands, in chorus sing: 
Good-bye, good-bye, to everything! 
  
To house and garden, field and lawn,         5
The meadow-gates we swang upon, 
To pump and stable, tree and swing, 
Good-bye, good-bye, to everything! 
  
And fare you well for evermore, 
O ladder at the hayloft door,  10
O hayloft where the cobwebs cling, 
Good-bye, good-bye, to everything! 
  
Crack goes the whip, and off we go; 
The trees and houses smaller grow; 
Last, round the woody turn we swing;  15
Good-bye, good-bye, to everything!
