    I adore Beatrix Potter! I read all of her stories as a child in my public school's library. I loved her beautiful pictures and stories and grew into an adult who believes that animals have thoughts and feelings and lives and communicate with and care about one another. I admire Beatrix Potter and I thank her for adding so much joy to my childhood (and adulthood!) .

Best Poem of Beatrix Potter

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run!
They all run after the farmer's wife,
And she cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did ever you see such a thing in your life
As three blind mice!
