For MacD and Collin

“Pooh, promise you won’t forget about me ever. Not even when I’m
a hundred.”
Pooh thought for a little. “How old shall I be then?”
“Ninety-nine.”
Pooh nodded. “I promise,” he said.
Still with his eyes on the world, Christopher Robin put out a hand
for Pooh’s paw.
“Pooh, whatever happens, you will understand, won’t you?”
“Understand what?”
“Oh, nothing.” He laughed and jumped to his feet. “Come on!”
“Where?” said Pooh.
“Anywhere,” said Christopher Robin.
So they went off together. But wherever they go, and
Whatever happens to them on the way,
In that enchanted place on the top of the Forest,
A little boy and his Bear will always be playing.

  1. There is a song about Pooh and Christopher Robin – gonna try and find it for you.

    Love to MacD and Collin! (And of course you my friend)

  2. Well that didn’t take me long at all (much a surprise to me!)

    Christopher Robin and I walked along
    Under branches lit up by the moon
    Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
    As our days disappeared all too soon
    But I’ve wandered much further today than I should
    And I can’t seem to find my way back to the Wood
    So help me if you can
    I’ve got to get back
    To the House at Pooh Corner by one
    You’d be surprised
    There’s so much to be done
    Count all the bees in the hive
    Chase all the clouds from the sky
    Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh
    Winnie the Pooh doesn’t know what to do
    Got a honey jar stuck on his nose
    He came to me asking help and advice
    And from here no one knows where he goes
    So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he’s there
    How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear
    It’s hard to explain how a few precious things
    Seem to follow throughout all our lives
    After all’s said and done I was watching my son
    Sleeping there with my bear by his side
    So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going
    I swear that the old bear whispered Boy welcome home
    Believe me if you can
    I’ve finally come back
    To the House at Pooh Corner by one
    What do you know
    There’s so much to be done
    Count all the bees in the hive
    Chase all the clouds from the sky
    Back to the days of Christopher Robin
    Back to the ways of Christopher Robin
    Back to the days of Pooh

    I always thought that Winnie The Pooh much like Alice in Wonderland, was not really written for children. Too many layers, too many lessons.

  6. Well said. Very well said. JG
