Halfway down the stairs


Jnr Jnr has taken to sitting on the stairs to watch something on her iPad for the past few months, I thought it was a short-term phase, but it seems to be a permanent part of her daily routine.


Halfway Down

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

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

A.A. Milne

I always loved that poem as a child, and come to think of it, I used to spend a lot of time on the stairs too.  But I never had an iPad.
