A A Milne – a favourite source of inspiration

When I am thinking about putting together a ceremony, a celebration, for my clients, I am sometimes drawn to the works of A A Milne. Milne was unique as a writer, because while others wrote about the harsh realities of life, Milne created a whimsical reality full of friendship and laughter. His vast array of poems, short stories and books are a wonderful source of inspiration for all occasions, be they weddings, funerals or baby naming ceremonies. I particulary like ‘The End’ as it’s about growing up. This poem definitely makes me want to be six forever. Maybe a little part of me still is!
The End
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 now for ever and ever.
