by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)
Translation

Every night
Language: English  after the English 
Every night my prayers I say,
and learn my lessons every day.
And every day that I am good
I have an orange after food.

The boy that is not clean and neat,
With lots of toys and things to eat,
He is a naughty boy, I'm sure,
Or else his dear papa is poor.
