Halfway down the stairs poem

Halfway down the stairs is a stair where I sit..There isn’t any other stair quite like it .I’m not at the bottom, I’m not at the top; so this is the stair where i always stop.

Halfway up the stairs Isn’t up, And it isn’t down.It isn’t in the nursery,It isn’t in the town. And all sorts of funny thoughts run round in my head, It isn’t really Anywhere!  It’s somewhere else instead.”

Halfway down the stairs is the poem by A.A.Milne included in the 1924 collection :When we were very Young. Both the poem and E.H.Shepard’s illustration has caught the mood of suspended action that sometimes overtakes small children on stairs In this poem, the image of finding yourself halfway down the stairs, in complete contentment, is very fulfilling. It describes the sentiment so many children have: of living purely in the moment, of not wanting to be anywhere else but right where they exist in that place and time. It evokes a feeling of being utterly at peace in one’s place in one’s growth..It looks like Christopher Robin is the narrator of the poem.
