As you may remember (that is, if you have nothing better to do than read and remember my blog posts), me and A.A. Milne go way back. Like, way back when we were very young.
And if you asked me to recite an A.A. Milne poem about a hat, boots, and a macintosh, I could do so, no problem. But, because I am a rather inattentive reader and also horridly neglectful about reading poem titles, I had never looked at the name of the hat, boot, and macintosh poem. I learned it today from a post on Brain Pickings.
And doesn’t that make the poem even better?
