A few of our Favourite Poems from A.A. Milne…

from “The Four Friends”3302126248poem_jpg

Ernest was an elephant, a great big fellow,

Leonard was a lion with a six foot tail,

George was a goat, and his beard was yellow,

And James was a very small snail…

They’re changing guard at Buckingham Palace –

Christopher Robin went down with Alice.

“Do you think the King knows all about me?”

“Sure to, dear, but it’s time for tea,”

                                     Says Alice.

from “At The Zoo”buffalo

There are lions and roaring tigers,

and enormous camels and things,

There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons,

and a great big bear with wings.

There’s a sort of a tiny potamus,

and a tiny nosserus too –

But I gave buns to the elephant

when I went down to the Zoo!

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.

Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.

“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.
