It’s ever so portant

A few weeks ago I announced October’s square theme with the help of the first verse of ‘Lines and Squares’ by A.A.Milne, and so today on the eve of the challenge I thought I’d share the second verse.

And the little bears growl to each other, “He’s mine, 
As soon as he’s silly and steps on a line.” 

And some of the bigger bears try to pretend 
That they came round the corner to look for a friend; 
And they try to pretend that nobody cares 
Whether you walk on the lines or squares. 
But only the sillies believe their talk; 
It’s ever so portant how you walk. 

And it’s ever so jolly to call out, “Bears, 
Just watch me walking in all the squares!”

from A.A.Milne’s ‘Lines and Squares’ 1924

a Boston Square

I am hoping there are no bears in this Boston Square as I suspect lines are going to be unavoidable when squares returns Tuesday!
