Visitation

You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes.

—Winnie the Pooh
(by A.A. Milne, born Jan. 18, 1882)

So let’s lace up our big boots
and step out into the world
where the rain has stopped

for a bit, and the little clouds
float in the blue as the winter
sky shimmers with radiance

that comes with a freshly
washed world, perfect for
a walk, perhaps a visitation

to someone who might like
a friend to stop by, someone
who, like Piglet, with his very

small heart, might find in it
a rather large amount
of gratitude that you,

big, old bear, came to sit
and talk awhile, because,
after all, it’s so much more

friendly with two.

Artist / E.H. Shepard
