Q.

Can you please tell me where I can get hold of a copy of the A.A. Milne quotation titled “Us Two”? I believe it may be from one of the Winnie the Pooh books but I’m not sure which.

A.

Us Two from Now we are Six A.A Milne (1882-1956)

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh;
there’s always Pooh and me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
“where are you going today?” says Pooh…
“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.
“Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.
“Let’s go together”, says Pooh.

“What’s twice eleven?” I said to Pooh,
“Twice what?” said Pooh to Me.
“I think it ought to be twenty two”,
“Just what I think myself,” said Pooh.
“It wasn’t an easy sum to do,
But that’s what it is,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what it is,” said Pooh.

“Let’s look for the dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“Yes, let’s,” said Pooh to Me.
We crossed the river and found a few…
“Yes those are dragons all right,” said Pooh.
“As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.
That’s what they are,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what they are,” said Pooh.

“Let’s frighten the dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“That’s right,” said Pooh to Me.
“I’m not afraid,” I said to Pooh,
And held his paw and shouted
“Shoo! Silly old dragons!” and off they flew.
“I wasn’t afraid,” said Pooh, said he,
“I’m never afraid with you.”

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh;
there’s always Pooh and me.
“What would I do?” I said to Pooh,
“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said…
“True, It isn’t much fun for One,
but Two can stick together,” says Pooh, says he.
“That’s how it is,” says Pooh.
