Subject: RE: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music

One that wasn't in there, but which I'm inordinately fond of, is "There once was a dormouse who slept in a bed Of delphiniums (blue) and geraniums (red)..

It's a fine commentary on folks who wish to do good for us, whether or not we wish it, and it sings well to most Irish jigs.
