Naming a Dormouse
Pooh's friend, A. A. Milne, also had trouble naming his dormouse:
by A.A.Milne 1882-1956
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 I sometimes call him Terrible Jack,
'Cos his tail goes on to the end of his back.
And 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 fond of him.
