National Poetry Day

They want us all to remember a poem that we learned as children.  I realised that Pooh was probably one of my earliest 'poets' and I can still recite this by heart now.

In which Tigger is unbounced...............

If Rabbit
Was bigger
And fatter
And stronger,
Or bigger
Than Tigger,
If Tigger was smaller,
Then Tigger's bad habit
Of bouncing at Rabbit
Would matter
No longer,
If Rabbit
Was taller.

A A Milne

I learned that one as a kid and later taught some of A A Milne's poems to my own kids. I also taught them the difference between the real Pooh, and the American imitation owned by Disney.

Good man! Disney bears no relation to A A Milne or E H Shepard.
