English poem(Bed In Summer)問題

Bed in Summer

By Robert Louis Stevenson

In winter I get up at night

And dress by yellow candle-light.

In summer, quite the other way,

I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see

The birds still hopping on the tree,

Or hear the grown-up people's feet

Still going past me in the street.

And does it seem hard to you,

When all the sky is clear and blue,

And I should like so much to play,

To have to go to bed by day?

我想問這個poem所帶出的信息是什麼?

仲有列出2個poetic devices

thx

Update:

那這poem的抒發的情感是。。。。。。?

    I have to go to bed and see

    The birds still hopping on the tree,

    Or hear the grown-up people's feet

    Still going past me in the street .

    And does it seem hard to you,

    When all the sky is clear and blue,

    And I should like so much to play,

    To have to go to bed by day?

    Rhyme meters in colours.

    其他poem的寫法可能我功力唔夠看唔得出

    不過首詩的故事則很清楚。

    試意譯出來給你看看,假如正式翻譯則會照原著用詞。

    夏之床

    In winter I get up at night

    冬季,我在天未光便起床

    And dress by yellow candle-light.

    在暗黃的燭光中穿衣

    In summer, quite the other way,

    夏季,卻是另一番景象

    I have to go to bed by day.

    我在天還大白便要去睡了

    I have to go to bed and see

    我在床上還看見

    The birds still hopping on the tree,

    鳥兒在樹上跳來跳去

    Or hear the grown-up people's feet

    又或聽見大人們的腳步聲

    Still going past me in the street.

    在外面的街上經過

    And does it seem hard to you,

    在這樣天朗氣清,

    When all the sky is clear and blue,

    我又多麼想玩耍的時候,

    And I should like so much to play,

    要在天還大白便上床睡覺,

    To have to go to bed by day?

    對你來說是否如我般感到難受?
