Halfway Down

Halfway down the stairs
Is a stair
Where I sit.
There isn't any
Other stair
Quite like
I'm not at the bottom
I'm not at the top,
So this is the stair
I always

Halfway up the stairs
Isn't up,
And isn't down.
It isn't in the nursery,
It isn't in the town.
And all sorts of funny thoughts
Run round my head:
"It isn't really
It's somewhere else

-- A.A. Milne.

I'm reading to Alex in English from Alan Alexander Milne's huge book of Winnie-The-Pooh stories and other poems. Alex is only three months old, so while I'm reading he's not really paying attention and is actually busy doing other things like trying to stuff his toy Moose my parents bought him into his mouth. But I get nervous that he's not getting enough English so I'm trying to make sure he hears it as much as I can.

Besides, these stories are fun to read. ;-)
