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 stars
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

One of Addy's favorite Milne poems...

Sarah Miller, who wrote Miss Spitfire, worked at a children's bookstore called Halfway Down the Stairs. :)

That must have been a fun place. I have noticed that lots of people like it, but don't recognize it until I begin reciting it. Our Youth Group had an open mic night, and I recited it there.
