When we were very young

A. A. Milne

Book Description

"When We Were Very Young" is a book of poetry written by A.A. Milne and published in 1924. The book is divided into two sections, the first of which is a collection of short poems, and the second of which is a longer narrative poem. The poems in the collection explore the joys, fears, and innocence of childhood, and the memories of growing up. Milne's writing is whimsical and witty, and his use of language is a delight to read. He creates vivid imagery with his words, painting pictures of childhood scenes and memories that linger in the mind. The narrative poem, "Vespers," is a reflection on a child's growing awareness of mortality and time passing. The poem is a tribute to the beauty and innocence of childhood, but also a reminder of the fragility of life. The book is a timeless classic, and its themes of childhood innocence and adulthood's inevitability are as relevant today as they were when it was first published. It is a reminder to savor the moments of childhood, and to appreciate the joy of being young. "When We Were Very Young" is a wonderful collection of poems that capture the beauty of childhood. A.A. Milne's writing is filled with humor and heart, creating a lasting impression of the innocence of youth.
