Poetry Friday at Panera

We had a little problem with WiFi at home so we are having lunch and poetry at Panera. Panera is our favorite free WiFi location. We often take advantage of it when we travel.

Noach wants to share his favorite. He reads like Charles Kuralt, whose recording he has listened to for many hours.

The Christening
by A. A. Milne

What shall I call
My dear little dormouse?
His eyes are small,
But his tail is e-nor-mouse.
I sometimes call him Terrible John,
'Cos his tail goes on-
And on-
And on.
And I sometimes call him Terrible Jack,
'Cos his tail goes on to the end of his back.
I sometimes call him Terrible James,
'Cos he says he likes me calling him names....
But I think I shall call him Jim,
'Cos I am so fond of him.
