Happy Birthday A. A. Milne!

A. A. Milne, one of my favorite childhood writers, is not really remembered as a poet per say a writer. He is known for a very famous bear: Winnie- the- Pooh. Milne is an English writer, playwright, and poet. Although I am a fan of his books, I did find a poem to share it still stars my favorite bear. The Friend-

 There are lots and lots of people who are always asking things,
Like Dates and Pounds-and-ounces and the names of funny Kings,
And the answer’s always Sixpence or a Hundred Inches Long.
And I know they’ll think me silly if I get the answer wrong.
So Pooh and I go whispering, and Pooh looks very bright,
And says, “Well, I say sixpence, but I don’t suppose I’m right.”
And then it doesn’t matter what the answer ought to be,
‘Cos if he’s right, I’m Right, and if he’s wrong, it isn’t Me.
