SUSAN BLUE.
Oh, Susan Blue,

How do you do?

Please may I go for a walk with you?

Where shall we go?

Oh, I know—

Down in the meadow where the cowslips grow!

SUSAN BLUE. 9

BLUE SHOES.
Little Blue Shoes

Mustn't go

Very far alone, you know

Else she'll fall down,

Or, lose her way;

Fancy—what

Would mamma say?

Better put her little hand

Under sister's wise command.

When she's a little older grown

Blue Shoes may go quite alone.


[6]

[7]

STREET SHOW.
Puff, puff, puff. How the trumpets blow

All you little boys and girls come and see the show.

One—two—three, the Cat runs up the tree;

But the little Bird he flies away—

"She hasn't got me!"

BLUE SHOES. 10

TO THE SUN DOOR.


They saw it rise in the morning,

They saw it set at night,

And they longed to go and see it,

Ah! if they only might.

The little soft white clouds heard them,

And stepped from out of the blue;

And each laid a little child softly

Upon its bosom of dew.

And they carried them higher and higher,

And they nothing knew any more

Until they were standing waiting

In front of the round gold door.

And they knocked, and called, and entreated,

Whoever should be within;

But all to no purpose, for no one

Would hearken to let them in.


[8]

[9]

STREET SHOW. 11
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

THE DAISIES.

You very fine Miss Molly, Perhaps you take a


sister,
What will the daisies say,
Perhaps you take a
If you carry home so many brother,

Of their little friends to-day? Or two little daisies


who

Were fond of one


another.
[9]

[10]

THE DANCING FAMILY.


Pray let me introduce you to

This little dancing family;

For morning, afternoon, and night

They danced away so happily.

They twirled round about,

They turned their toes out;

The people wondered what the noise

Could all be about.

They danced from early morning,

Till very late at night;

THE DAISIES. 12
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

Both in-doors and out-of-doors,

With very great delight.


[10]

[11]

And every sort of dance they knew,

From every country far away;

And so it was no wonder that

They should keep dancing all the day.

So dancing—dancing—dancing,

In sunshine or in rain;

And when they all left off,

Why then—they all began again.


[11]

[12]

GOING TO SEE GRANDMAMMA.


Little Molly and Damon And into her garden

Are walking so far, They know they may


run,
For they're going to see
And pick some red
Their kind Grandmamma. currants,

And they very well know, And have lots of fun.

When they get there she'll take So Damon to doggie

THE DANCING FAMILY. 13


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

From out of her cupboard Says, "How do you do?"

Some very nice cake. And asks his mamma

If he may not go too.


[12]

[13]

WISHES.
Oh, if you were a little boy,

And I was a little girl—

Why you would have some whiskers grow

And then my hair would curl.

Ah! if I could have whiskers grow,

I'd let you have my curls;

But what's the use of wishing it—

Boys never can be girls.


[13]

[14]

FIRST ARRIVALS.
It is a Party, do you know, To them a little hard is Fate,

And there they sit, all in a row, Yet better early than too late;

Waiting till the others come, Fancy getting there forlorn,

GOING TO SEE GRANDMAMMA. 14


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

To begin to have some fun. With the tea and cake all gone.

Hark! the bell rings sharp and clear, Wonder what they'll have for tea;

Other little friends appear; Hope the jam is strawberry.

And no longer all alone Wonder what the dance and game;

They begin to feel at home. Feel so very glad they came.


Very Happy may you be,

May you much enjoy your tea.


[14]

[15]

WHEN WE WENT OUT WITH GRANDMAMMA.


When we went out with One on each side we had to go,
Grandmamma—
And never laugh or loll;
Mamma said for a treat—
I carried Prim, her Spaniard dog,
Oh, dear, how stiff we had to walk
And Tom—her parasol.
As we went down the street.
[15]

[16]

If I looked right—if Tom looked left—

"Tom—Susan—I'm ashamed;

And little Prim, I'm sure, is shocked,

To hear such naughties named."


She said we had no manners, She said they never wished then

FIRST ARRIVALS. 15
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

If we ever talked or sung; To play—oh, indeed!

"You should have seen," said Grandmamma, They learnt to sew and needlework,

"Me walk, when I was young." Or else to write and read.

She told us—oh, so often— She said her mother never let

How little girls and boys, Her speak a word at meals;

In the good days when she was young, "But now," said Grandmamma,
"you'd think
Never made any noise.
That children's tongues had wheels
"So fast they go—clack, clack, clack, clack;

Now listen well, I pray,

And let me see you both improve

From what I've said to-day."


[16]

[17]

TO MYSTERY LAND. Oh, dear, I'm sure it is true;

Oh, dear, how will it end? Whatever on earth can it matter to you?

Peggy and Susie how naughty you are. For you know it—oh, fie—

You little know where you are, That it's naughty to pry

Going so far, and so high, Into other's affairs—

Nearly up to the sky. Into other folks houses to go,

Perhaps it's a Giant who lives there, Where you know

And perhaps it's a lovely Princess. You're not asked.

But you very well know So you'd better come back

You've no business to go; While there's time, it is plain.

WHEN WE WENT OUT WITH GRANDMAMMA. 16


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

You'll get yourselves into a mess. Go home—and be never

So naughty again.
[17]

[18]

FROM MARKET.
Oh who'll give us Posies,

And Garlands of Roses,

To twine round our heads so gay?

For here we come bringing

You many good wishes to-day.

From market—from market—from market—

We all come up from market.


[18]

[19]

LITTLE PHILLIS.
I am a very little girl, I've got a little kitten, but

I think that I've turned two; I can't give that away,

And if you'd like to know my name She likes to play with me so much;

I'd like to tell it you. She's gone to sleep to-day.

They always call me Baby, And I've got a nice new dolly,

TO MYSTERY LAND. 17
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

But Phillis is my name. Shall I fetch her out to you?

No—no one ever gave it me, She's got such pretty shoes on,

I think it only came. And her bonnet's trimmed with blue.

I've got a pretty tulip You'd like to take her home with you?

In my little flower-bed; Oh, no, she mustn't go;

If you would like I'll give it you— Good-bye—I want to run now,

It's yellow, striped with red. You walk along so slow.


[19]

[20]

THE FOUR PRINCESSES.


Four Princesses lived in a Green Tower—

A Bright Green Tower in the middle of the sea;

And no one could think—oh, no one could think—

Who the Four Princesses could be.

One looked to the North, and one to the South,

And one to the East, and one to the West;

They were all so pretty, so very pretty,

You could not tell which was the prettiest.


[20]

[21]

Their curls were golden—their eyes were blue,

LITTLE PHILLIS. 18
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

And their voices were sweet as a silvery bell;

And four white birds around them flew,

But where they came from—who could tell?

Oh, who could tell? for no one knew,

And not a word could you hear them say.

But the sound of their singing, like church bells ringing,

Would sweetly float as they passed away.

For under the sun, and under the stars,

They often sailed on the distant sea;

Then in their Green Tower and Roses bower

They lived again—a mystery.


[21]

[22]

WHEN YOU AND I GROW UP.


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.

THE FOUR PRINCESSES. 19

[23]

IN AN APPLE TREE.
In September, when the apples were red,

To Belinda I said,

"Would you like to go away

To Heaven, or stay

Here in this orchard full of trees

All your life?" And she said, "If you please

I'll stay here—where I know,

And the flowers grow."


[23]

[24]

THE WEDDING BELLS.


The Wedding Bells were ringing,

And Monday was the day,

And all the little ladies

Were there so fresh and gay.

And up—up—up the steps they went,

The wedding fine to see;

WHEN YOU AND I GROW UP. 20


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

And the Roses were all for the Bride,

So pretty—so pretty was she.


[24]

[25]

THE LITTLE LONDON GIRL.


In my little Green House, quite content am I,

When the hot sun pours down from the sky;

For oh, I love the country—the beautiful country.

Who'd live in a London street when there's the country?

I live in a London street, then I long and long

To be the whole day the sweet Flowers among

Instead of tall chimney-pots up in the sky,

The joy of seeing Birds and Dragon Flies go by.


[25]

[26]

At home I lie in bed, and cannot go to sleep,

For the sound of cart-wheels upon the hard street.

But here my eyes close up to no sound of anything

Except it is to hear the nightingales sing.

And then I see the Chickens and the Geese go walking,

I hear the Pigs and the Ducks all talking.

THE WEDDING BELLS. 21


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
And the Red and the Spotted Cows they stare at me,

As if they wondered whoever I could be.

I see the little Lambs out with their mothers—

Such pretty little white young sisters and brothers.

Oh, I'll stay in the country, and make a daisy chain,

And never go back to London again.


[26]

[27]

TO BABY.
Oh, what shall my blue eyes go see?

Shall it be pretty Quack-Quack to-day?

Or the Peacock upon the Yew Tree?

Or the dear little white Lambs at play?

Say Baby.

For Baby is such a young Petsy,

And Baby is such a sweet Dear.

And Baby is growing quite old now—

She's just getting on for a year.


[27]

[28]

THE LITTLE LONDON GIRL. 22


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

WILLY AND HIS SISTER.


[28]

[29]

Willy said to his sister, "And the big heaps of corn

"Please may I go with you?" That lie upon the floor;

She said, "You must behave He will let me play with those

Very nicely if you do." I am quite sure.

"Please will you take me then "I like to hear the wheel

To look at the mill?" Make such a rushing sound,

"Yes," she said, "because you are And see the pretty water

So very good—I will." Go round, and round, and round.

"The miller he is "So take me to the mill,

So very white and kind; For then you shall see

And sprinkled all over What a very, very good boy

With the flour they grind. I really mean to be."


[29]

[30]

AT SCHOOL.
Five little Girls, sitting on a form,

Five little Girls, with lessons to learn,

Five little Girls, who, I'm afraid,

TO BABY. 23
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
Won't know them a bit when they have to be said.

For little eyes are given to look

Anywhere else than on their book;

And little thoughts are given to stray

Anywhere—ever so far away.


[30]

[31]

HAPPY DAYS.
"Are you going next week to see Phillis and Phoebe?

Phillis on Monday will be just fourteen.

She says we shall all have our tea in the garden,

And afterwards have some nice games on the green.

"I wanted a new frock, but mother said, 'No,'

So I must be content with my old one you see.

But then white is so pretty, and kind Aunt Matilda

Has sent down a beautiful necklace for me."


[31]

[32]

"Oh, yes, I am going, and Peggy is going,

And mother is making us new frocks to wear;

I shall have my red sash and my hat with pink ribbons—

AT SCHOOL. 24
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
I know all the girls will be smart who are there.

"And then, too, we're going to each take a nosegay—

The larger the better—for Phillis to say

That all her friends love her, and wish her so happy,

And bring her sweet flowers upon her birthday.

"And won't it be lovely, in beautiful sunshine,

The table spread under the great apple tree,

To see little Phillis—that dear little Phillis—

Look smiling all round as she pours out the tea!"


[32]

[33]

THE LITTLE QUEEN'S COMING.


With Roses—red Roses, Then clash out a welcome,

We'll pelt her with Roses, Let all the bells sound, come,

And Lilies—white Lilies we'll drop at her feet; To give her a welcoming proud and sweet.

The little Queen's coming, How her blue eyes will beam,

The people are running— And her golden curls gleam,

The people are running to greet and to meet. When the sound of our singing rings down the
street.
[33]

[34]

HAPPY DAYS. 25
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

ON THE WALL TOP.


Dancing and prancing to town we go,

On the top of the wall of the town we go.

Shall we talk to the stars, or talk to the moon,

Or run along home to our dinner so soon?


[34]

[35]

ON THE WALL TOP.


So high—so high on the wall we run,

The nearer the sky—why, the nearer the sun,

If you give me one penny, I'll give you two,

For that's the way good neighbours do.


[35]

[36]

TIP-A-TOE.
Tip-a-Toe,

See them go;

One, two, three—

Chloe, Prue, and me;

Up and down,

THE LITTLE QUEEN'S COMING. 26


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
To the town.

A Lord was there,

And the Lady fair.

And what did they sing?

Oh, "Ring-a-ding-ding;"

And the Black Crow flew off

With the Lady's Ring.


[36]

[37]

MAMMAS AND BABIES.


"My Polly is so very good,

Belinda never cries;

My Baby often goes to sleep,

See how she shuts her eyes.

"Dear Mrs. Lemon tell me when

Belinda goes to school;

And what time does she go to bed?"

"Well, eight o'clock's the rule.

"But now and then, just for a treat,

I let her wait awhile;

You shake your head—why, wouldn't you?

Do look at Baby's smile!"


[37]

TIP-A-TOE. 27
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

[38]

"Dear Mrs. Primrose will you come

One day next week to tea?

Of course bring Rosalinda, and

That darling—Rosalie."

"Dear Mrs. Cowslip, you are kind;

My little folks, I know,

Will be so very pleased to come;

Dears—tell Mrs. Cowslip so.

"Oh, do you know—perhaps you've not heard—

She had a dreadful fright;

My Daisy with the measles

Kept me up every night.

"And then I've been so worried—

Clarissa had a fit;

And the doctor said he couldn't

In the least account for it."


[38]

[39]

MAMMAS AND BABIES. 28


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

MY LITTLE GIRLIE.
Little girlie tell to me Does a tiny Fairy flit

What your wistful blue eyes see? In the pretty blue of it?

Why you like to stand so high, Or is it that you hope so soon

Looking at the far off sky. To see the rising yellow


Moon?
Or is it—as I think I've heard—

You're looking for a little Bird

To come and sit upon a spray,

And sing the summer night away?


[39]

[40]

THE CATS HAVE COME TO TEA.


[40]

[41]

What did she see—oh, what did she see, What a fine turn out—from round about,

As she stood leaning against the tree? All the houses had let them out,

Why all the Cats had come to tea. And here they were with scamper and shout.
"Mew—mew—mew!" was all they could say,

And, "We hope we find you well to-day."


Oh, what should she do—oh, what should she do? She didn't know—oh, she didn't know,

What a lot of milk they would get through; If bread and butter they'd like or no;

For here they were with "Mew—mew—mew!" They might want little mice, oh! oh! oh!

MY LITTLE GIRLIE. 29
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

Dear me—oh, dear me,

All the cats had come to tea.


[41]

[42]

THE TEA PARTY.


In the pleasant green Garden

We sat down to tea;

"Do you take sugar?" and

"Do you take milk?"

She'd got a new gown on—

A smart one of silk.

We all were so happy

As happy could be,

On that bright Summer's day

When she asked us to tea.


[42]

[43]

THE CATS HAVE COME TO TEA. 30


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

UNDER ROSE ARCHES.


Under Rose Arches to Rose Town— Twist and twine Roses and Lilies,

Rose Town on the top of the hill; And little leaves green,

For the Summer wind blows and music goes, Fit for a queen;

And the violins sound shrill. Twist and twine Roses and Lilies.
Oh, Roses shall be for her carpet, Twist and twine Roses and Lilies,

And her curtains of Roses so fair; And all the bells ring,

And a Rosy crown, while far adown And all the people sing;

Floats her long golden hair. Twist and twine Roses and Lilies.
[43]

[44]

A GENTEEL FAMILY.
Some children are so naughty,

And some are very good;

But the Genteel Family

Did always what it should.

They put on gloves when they went out,

And ran not in the street;

And on wet days not one of them

Had ever muddy feet.

Then they were always so polite,

And always thanked you so;

And never threw their toys about,

UNDER ROSE ARCHES. 31


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

As naughty children do.


[44]

[45]

They always learnt their lessons

When it was time they should;

And liked to eat up all their crusts—

They were so very good.

And then their frocks were never torn,

Their tuckers always clean;

And their hair so very tidy—

Always quite fit to be seen.

Then they made calls with their mamma

And were so very neat;

And learnt to bow becomingly

When they met you in the street.

And really they were everything

That children ought to be;

And well may be examples now

For little you—and me.


[45]

[46]

A GENTEEL FAMILY. 32
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

BABY
MINE.
Baby
mine, over
the trees;

Baby
mine, over
the
flowers;

Baby
mine, over
the
sunshine;

Baby
mine, over
the
showers.
Baby mine, over the land;

Baby mine, over the water.

Oh, when had a mother before

Such a sweet—such a sweet,


little daughter!
[46]

[47]

LITTLE GIRLS AND LITTLE LAMBS.


In the May-time flowers grow;

Little girls in meadows go;

Little lambs frisk with delight,

And in the green grass sleep at night.

BABY MINE. 33
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway

Little birds sing all the day,

Oh, in such a happy way!

All the day the sun is bright,

Little stars shine all the night.

The Cowslip says to the Primrose,

"How soft the little Spring wind blows!"

The Daisy and the Buttercup

Sing every time that they look up.

For beneath the sweet blue sky

They see a pretty Butterfly;

The Butterfly, when he looks down,

Says, "What a pretty Flower Town!"


[47]

[48]

FROM
WONDER
WORLD.
Out of Wonder World I
think you come;

For in your eyes the


wonder comes with
you.

The stars are the


windows of Heaven,

And sometimes I think


you peep through.

LITTLE GIRLS AND LITTLE LAMBS. 34


The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
Oh, little girl, tell us do
the Flowers

Tell you secrets when


they find you all alone?

Or the Birds and


Butterflies whisper

Of things to us
unknown?
Or do angel voices speak to you so softly,

When we only hear a little wind sigh;

And the peaceful dew of Heaven fall upon you

When we only see a white cloud passing by?


[48]

[49]

CHILD'S SONG.
The King and the Queen were riding

Upon a Summer's day,

And a Blackbird flew above them,

To hear what they did say.

The King said he liked apples,

The Queen said she liked pears.

And what shall we do to the Blackbird

Who listens unawares.

[50]

MISS MOLLY AND THE LITTLE FISHES.


Oh, sweet Miss Molly,

You're so fond

Of Fishes in a little Pond.

And perhaps they're glad

To see you stare

With such bright eyes

Upon them there.

And when your fingers and your thumbs

Drop slowly in the small white crumbs

I hope they're happy. Only this—

When you've looked long enough, sweet miss.

Then, most beneficent young giver,

Restore them to their native river.


[50]

[51]

THE LITTLE JUMPING GIRLS.


Jump—jump—jump— Jump—jump—jump—

Jump away Jump over the moon;

From this town into Jump all the morning,

CHILD'S SONG. 36
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
The next, to-day. And all the noon.
[51]

[52]

Jump—jump—jump— Jump—jump—jump—

Jump all night; And leave behind

Won't our mothers Everything evil

Be in a fright? That we may find.

Jump—jump—jump— Jump—jump—jump—

Over the sea; Jump far away;

What wonderful wonders And all come home

We shall see. Some other day.


[52]

[53]

RING-A-RING.
Ring-a-ring of little boys.

Ring-a-ring of girls;

All around—all around,

Twists and twirls.


You are merry children; "We live in the mountain,

"Yes, we are." We live in the tree;

Where do you come from? And I live in the river-bed,

"Not very far. And you won't catch me!"

THE LITTLE JUMPING GIRLS. 37

[54]

ON THE BRIDGE.
If I could see a little fish— I think I'll get some stones to throw,

That is what I just now wish! And watch the pretty circles show.

I want to see his great round eyes Or shall we sail a flower-boat,

Always open in surprise. And watch it slowly—slowly float?

I wish a water rat would glide That's nice—because you never know

Slowly to the other side; How far away it means to go;

Or a dancing spider sit And when to-morrow comes, you see,

On the yellow flags a bit. It may be in the great wide sea.


[54]

[55]

BALL.
One—two, is one to you:

One—two—three, is one to me.

Throw it fast or not at all,

And mind you do not let it fall.

And Fairy Brown,

And dear little Golden Curls,

"Good-bye" with no pain—

Till some happy day

We meet again!

If you paid a fee for obtaining a copy of or access to a Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic work and you do not agree to be bound by the
terms of this agreement, you may obtain a refund from the person or
entity to whom you paid the fee as set forth in paragraph 1.E.8.

1.B. "Project Gutenberg" is a registered trademark. It may only be


used on or associated in any way with an electronic work by people who
agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement. There are a few
things that you can do with most Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works

individual work is in the public domain in the United States and you are
located in the United States, we do not claim a right to prevent you from
copying, distributing, performing, displaying or creating derivative
works based on the work as long as all references to Project Gutenberg
are removed. Of course, we hope that you will support the Project

this agreement for keeping the Project Gutenberg-tm name associated with

keeping this work in the same format with its attached full Project
Gutenberg-tm License when you share it without charge with others.

before downloading, copying, displaying, performing, distributing or

Gutenberg-tm work. The Foundation makes no representations concerning

1.F.1. Project Gutenberg volunteers and employees expend considerable


effort to identify, do copyright research on, transcribe and proofread
public domain works in creating the Project Gutenberg-tm
collection. Despite these efforts, Project Gutenberg-tm electronic
works, and the medium on which they may be stored, may contain
"Defects," such as, but not limited to, incomplete, inaccurate or
corrupt data, transcription errors, a copyright or other intellectual
property infringement, a defective or damaged disk or other medium, a
computer virus, or computer codes that damage or cannot be read by
your equipment.

defect in this electronic work within 90 days of receiving it, you can

providing it to you may choose to give you a second opportunity to
receive the work electronically in lieu of a refund. If the second copy
is also defective, you may demand a refund in writing without further
opportunities to fix the problem.

Section 2. Information about the Mission of Project Gutenberg-tm

Project Gutenberg-tm is synonymous with the free distribution of


electronic works in formats readable by the widest variety of computers
including obsolete, old, middle-aged and new computers. It exists
because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from
people in all walks of life.

Volunteers and financial support to provide volunteers with the


assistance they need, is critical to reaching Project Gutenberg-tm's
goals and ensuring that the Project Gutenberg-tm collection will
remain freely available for generations to come. In 2001, the Project
Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation was created to provide a secure
and permanent future for Project Gutenberg-tm and future generations.
To learn more about the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation
and how your efforts and donations can help, see Sections 3 and 4
and the Foundation web page at http://www.pglaf.org.

Section 4. Information about Donations to the Project Gutenberg


Literary Archive Foundation

Project Gutenberg-tm depends upon and cannot survive without wide


spread public support and donations to carry out its mission of
increasing the number of public domain and licensed works that can be
freely distributed in machine readable form accessible by the widest
array of equipment including outdated equipment. Many small donations
($1 to $5,000) are particularly important to maintaining tax exempt
status with the IRS.

The Foundation is committed to complying with the laws regulating


charities and charitable donations in all 50 states of the United
States. Compliance requirements are not uniform and it takes a
considerable effort, much paperwork and many fees to meet and keep up
with these requirements. We do not solicit donations in locations
where we have not received written confirmation of compliance. To
SEND DONATIONS or determine the status of compliance for any
particular state visit http://pglaf.org

While we cannot and do not solicit contributions from states where we


have not met the solicitation requirements, we know of no prohibition
against accepting unsolicited donations from donors in such states who
approach us with offers to donate.

International donations are gratefully accepted, but we cannot make


any statements concerning tax treatment of donations received from
outside the United States. U.S. laws alone swamp our small staff.

Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation
methods and addresses. Donations are accepted in a number of other
ways including checks, online payments and credit card donations.
To donate, please visit: http://pglaf.org/donate

Section 5. General Information About Project Gutenberg-tm electronic


works.

Professor Michael S. Hart is the originator of the Project Gutenberg-tm


concept of a library of electronic works that could be freely shared
with anyone. For thirty years, he produced and distributed Project
Gutenberg-tm eBooks with only a loose network of volunteer support.

BALL. 48
The Project Gutenberg eBook of Marigold Garden, by Kate Greenaway
Project Gutenberg-tm eBooks are often created from several printed
editions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the U.S.
unless a copyright notice is included. Thus, we do not necessarily
keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition.

Most people start at our Web site which has the main PG search facility:

http://www.gutenberg.org

This Web site includes information about Project Gutenberg-tm,


including how to make donations to the Project Gutenberg Literary
Archive Foundation, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to
subscribe to our email newsletter to hear about new eBooks.
