This wonderful poem by Robert Louis Stevenson explores the tender and inquisitive nature of the youthful mind. As a child casts his own miniature boat along the river, he wonders where it will end up, and where other children's boats go. The melody rings of a children's lullaby and the watery accompaniment flows along, just like the river depicted in the poem, which "flows along forever with trees on either hand." Perfect for any children's choir concert in the spring or autumn, this piece can also be useful for children who are just beginning their experiences with harmony. The second voice part builds on the traditional falling third and is very accessible.
