Robert Louis Stevenson

"Here, Perfect to a Wish"

Here, perfect to a wish,
We offer, not a dish,
	But just the platter:
A book that's not a book,
A pamphlet in the look
	But not the matter.

I own in disarray:
As to the flowers of May
	The frosts of Winter;
To my poetic rage,
The smallness of the page
	And of the printer.
