Now I am Six: by A.A. Milne

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I’m as clever as clever,
So I think I’ll be six for ever and ever.


A.A. Milne wrote the original Winnie-the-Pooh books, along with other books for children, including Now We Are Six, from which this poem comes. This poem was recently shared with me by a friend. It is so sweet I thought I would share it with you.
