POOH'S PRAYER
by Woo


Pooh Bear kneels by Christopher's bed,
Droops on little paws little gold head,
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares
Winnie-the-Pooh is saying his prayers.

God bless Christopher. I know that's good.
Wasn't it fun today in the Wood?
The wind so cold and the sun so hot.
Oh! God bless Piglet--I quite forgot.

If I open my paws a little bit more,
I can see Christopher's dressing-gown on the door.
It 's a beautiful red with a lovely hood.
Oh! God bless Christopher and make him good.

I lie with Christopher in his bed,
And watch as he pulls the hood over his head.
We shut our eyes and curl up small,
And nobody knows that WE are there at all.

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

Pooh Bear kneels by Christopher's bed.
Droops on little paws little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares
Winnie-the-Pooh is saying his prayers.
