When You And I Grow Up - Kate Greenaway

When you and I
Grow up–Polly–
 I mean that you and me,
Shall go sailing in a big ship
 Right over all the sea.
We'll wait till we are older,
 For if we went to-day,
You know that we might lose ourselves,
 And never find the way.

Kate Greenaway (1846 - 1901)
