    I want the world
    I want the whole world
    I want to lock it
    All up in my pocket
    ~ very interesting lines... a delight to read... Being aware of one’s selfhood and being self-centred is a sweet sign of growth that most of us are unwilling to grow out of... “ milk for children, honey for adults” :)

    Definitely sounded like a child with all the eagerness, joy-in-the-moment, raging cravings with no thought about patiently waiting what's the fun of that- -tis both the charm of children and the annoyance of them- he understands them well (Report)Reply

    This poem carries eagerness, effort, joy and the moment of feelings. This is an amazing poem for kids but very interesting.

    I love the way Dahl can write his poetry like it were for the kids and yet he is communicating to the adults too. Milk for the babies and honey for adults. (Report)Reply
