    • Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
      Droops on the little hands little gold head.
      Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
      Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

      God bless Mummy. I know that's right.
      Wasn't it fun in the bath to-night?
      The cold's so cold, and the hot's so hot.
      Oh! God bless Daddy - I quite forgot.

      If I open my fingers a little bit more,
      I can see Nanny's dressing-gown on the door.
      It's a beautiful blue, but it hasn't a hood.
      Oh! God bless Nanny and make her good.

      Mine has a hood, and I lie in bed,
      And pull the hood right over my head,
      And I shut my eyes, and I curl up small,
      And nobody knows that I'm there at all.

      Oh! Thank you, God, for a lovely day.
      And what was the other I had to say?
      I said "Bless Daddy," so what can it be?
      Oh! Now I remember it. God bless Me.

      Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
      Droops on the little hands little gold head.

    • We live in our own world,
      A world that is too small
      For you to stoop and enter
      Even on hands and knees,
      The adult subterfuge.
      And though you probe and pry
      With analytic eye,
      And eavesdrop all our talk
      With an amused look,
      You cannot find the centre
      Where we dance, where we play,
      Where life is still asleep
      Under the closed flower,
      Under the smooth shell
      Of eggs in the cupped nest
      That mock the faded blue
      Of your remoter heaven.   R.S. Thomas - 'Children's song'
