In the Middle Works Great, Too

HALFWAY DOWN, By A.A. Milne

Halfway down the stairs

Is a stair

Where I sit.

There isn’t any

Other Stair

Quite like

It.

I’m not at the bottom,

I’m not at the top;

So this is the stair

Where

I always

Stop.

Halfway up the stairs

Isn’t up,

And it isn’t down.

It isn’t in the nursery,

It isn’t in the town.

And all sorts of  funny thoughts

Run round my head:

“It isn’t really

Anywhere!

It’s somewhere else

Instead!”
