A. A. Milne


In a corner of the bedroom is a great big curtain,
    Someone lives behind it, but I don't know who;
I think it is a Brownie, but I'm not quite certain.
    (Nanny isn't certain, too.)
I looked behind the curtain, but he went so 
        quickly -
    Brownies never wait to say, "How do you do?"
They wriggle off at once because they're all so 
    (Nanny says they're tickly too.)
