Alan Alexander Milne

(18 January 1882 – 31 January 1956 / Kilburn, London)

Twinkletoes


When the sun
Shines through the leaves of the apple-tree,
When the sun
Makes shadows of the leaves of the apple-tree,
Then I pass
On the grass
From one leaf to another,
From one leaf to its brother,
Tip-toe, tip-toe!
Here I go!

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
