Christopher Robin Milne
Or, as He Prefers to Call Himself,
Which Owes So Much to Him
I never did, I never did, I never did like
"Now take care, dear!"
I never did, I never did, I never did want
I never did, I never did, I never did think much of
"Not up there, dear!"
It's no good saying it. They don't understand.
~~from The Fourth Chair.
...Shall I go off to South America?
Shall I put out in my ship to sea?
Or get in my cage and be lions and tigers?
Or--Shall I be only Me?
~~From Spring Morning.
...Where am I going? I don't quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the blue-bells grow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don't know.
