Sigh.

When my little sister was younger, say 1st or 2nd grade, she had to memorize a poem for the Speech Meet. (Sounds boring to you, sound AWESOME to me.)

It was, "Wind on the Hill" by A. A. Milne.

And if you recall, A.A. Milne is the author of the stories of Winnie the Pooh and that sweet little British lad, Christopher Robin.

Ah, I love those stories. And when I was a kid - I loved watching Pooh's Corner.

I've always liked Pooh. And Piglet. I don't like them in such a way that I need to decorate my children's room in all things Winnie the Pooh. But I like them in a classic sense. They're lovely.

I think it's important that little ones see positive relationships - and the friendship between Piglet and Pooh was just precious.

This has always been a favorite of mine:


Ah, so sweet.

That's all for now.

And here's Wind on the Hill, if you should happen to want to read it.

I still remember it.

Wind on the Hill by A.A. Milne

No one can tell me,
Nobody knows,
Where the wind comes from,
Where the wind goes.

It's flying from somewhere
As fast as it can,
I couldn't keep up with it,
Not if I ran.

But if I stopped holding
The string of my kite,
It would blow with the wind
For a day and a night.

And then when I found it,
Wherever it blew,
I should know that the wind
Had been going there too.

So then I could tell them
Where the wind goes...
But where the wind comes from
Nobody knows.

Oh, memories.
