Description:
Vespers (Christopher Robin is Saying his Prayers) written by A. A. Milne..
In 1924’ “Vespers,” was published in When We Were Very Young the first Christopher Robin poem. Both as verse and in its musical setting by Harold Fraser-Simson, it became an instant classic.

Harold Fraser-Simson (15 August 1872 – 19 January 1944), was an English composer of light music, including songs and the scores to musical comedies. His most famous musical was the WW 1 hit, The Maid of the Mountain, and he later set numerous children's poems to music, especially those of A. A. Milne.

After hearing the Ogden Scherzo for Alice in Wonderland I was reminded of Vespers by A. A. Milne. I've just used the piano and voice music.

Vespers
Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

God bless Mummy. I know that's right.
Wasn't it fun in the bath to-night?
The cold's so cold, and the hot's so hot.
Oh! God bless Daddy - I quite forgot.

If I open my fingers a little bit more,
I can see Nanny's dressing-gown on the door.
It's a beautiful blue, but it hasn't a hood.
Oh! God bless Nanny and make her good.

Mine has a hood, and I lie in bed,
And pull the hood right over my head,
And I shut my eyes, and I curl up small,
And nobody knows that I'm there at all.

Oh! Thank you, God, for a lovely day.
And what was the other I had to say?
I said "Bless Daddy," so what can it be?
Oh! Now I remember it. God bless Me.

Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.
