A POEM BY RUDYARD KIPLING

I Keep Six Honest Serving Men,
(They Taught Me Alll I Knew);
Their Names Are What And Why And When
And How And Where And Who.
I Send Them Over Land And Sea ,
I Send Them East And West,
But After They Have Worked For Me,
I Give Them All A Rest.

I Let Them Rest From Nine To Five,
For I Am Busy Then,
As Well As Breakfast,Lunch and Tea,
For They Are Hungry Men.
But Different Folk Have Different Views,
I know a person small-
She keeps ten million serving men,
Who get no rest at all!
She sends 'em abroad on her own affairs,
From the second she opens her eyes,
One million Hows, two million wheres
And seven million whys.

The Elephants Child

Sometime I get in a mood, and I need poetry. This is a favorite of mine.

This is Bridal Veil Falls located in Colorful Colorado

I thought you might enjoy it!

It reminds me of every 3 year old I've ever met. Why? Why? Why?

I laughed all the way through!
