Thread Name: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music/Christopher Robin
Subject: RE: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music
THis is fascinating. When I was a child on my first visit to London, we went to see the changing of the guard and there were people (locals, from the sound of it) singing that song, which was the first time I'd heard it not being a poem. I'd love to hear all these others. In terms of songs ABOUT Winnie the Pooh, I know a GREAT one in Hungarian, which is kind of like the tiddely-pom The More It Snows bit, and also kind of like Christopher Robin and I walked along under branches lit up by the moon, which I cannot recall the artist nor have I seen mentioned in this thread. But these aren't BY AAMilne, who remains one of my very favorite poets, right up there with Edward Lear.
