A.A. Milne


When I was one I’d just begun,
When I was two I was nearly new,
When I was three I was hardly me,
When I was four I was not much more,
When I was five I was barely alive,
But now I am six! As clever as clever!
And I think I’ll stay six now for ever and ever!

Christopher Robin goes hopity hopity,Hopity hopity hop.
When ever I tell him politely to stop it,
He says he can’t possibly stop.
For if he stopped hopping, he couldn’t go anywhere.
Poor little Christopher couldn’t go anywhere,
And so he just keeps hoppity hoppity,
Hoppity hoppity hop.

“Ha-ha”, said Eeyore bitterly. “Merriment and what-not. Don’t apologize. It’s just what would happen.”

Promise me, Pooh, that you won’t forget me ever, because if I thought you would, I wouldn’t leave.

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh, there’s always Pooh and me. Whatever I do, he wants to do; ‘Where are you going today?’ says pooh, ‘Well that’s very odd, cos I was too. Lets go together’ says pooh, says he, ‘Lets go together’ says Pooh.

The more he looked inside the more Piglet wasn’t there.

‘Let’s go and see everybody,’ said Pooh. ‘Because when you have been walking in the wind for miles, and you suddenly go into somebody’s house, and he says, “Hallo, Pooh you’re just in time for a little smackerel of something,” and you are, then it’s what I call a Friendly Day.’
