Reviews for We Leave Them There
Rye-bread chapter 1 . 6/20/2010
An old roomie told me a story years ago. I did a bit of google to brush up.

There is a story dating from the Middle Ages. It is a similar theme to "The Little Drummer Boy". A juggler has no gift for the Blessed St. Mary, the Mother of Our Lord, so he performs in front of her statue. The monks are about to rebuke him for impiety, but the Statue comes to life and blesses the juggler. It was made into a story, “Le Jongleur de Notre Dame” by Anatole France, published in 1892, and in 1902 as an opera by composer Jules Massenet, and in 1942, MGM movie short, entitled "The Greatest Gift", starring the great comedic actor, Edmund Gwenn as the juggler

You have laid your flower on the gravesite of our friend, and a beautiful bloom it is. We are poor jugglers, performing for the young Lady, and what she represents. We are simple bards, spinning our tales, to lift the hearts of our readers, with such skill as the Father in Heaven has gifted us.

This was well done.

Enduring Man-Child,

What a wonderful story. It is so like you to write something so thoughtful as this.

For some reason this song came to mind. I think it tells of the relationship you had with Ben.

My heart feels the loss as deeply. May we never forget him.

Hugs and a butterfly kiss on the wind.


Return to Pooh Corner

Written and performed by: Kenny Loggins

Christopher Robin and I walked along

Under branches lit up by the moon

Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore

As our days disappeared all too soon

But I've wandered much further today than I should

And I can't seem to find my way back to the Wood

So help me if you can

I've got to get back

To the House at Pooh Corner by one

You'd be surprised

There's so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive

Chase all the clouds from the sky

Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do

Got a honey jar stuck on his nose

He came to me asking help and advice

And from here no one knows where he goes

So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he's there

How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

It's hard to explain how a few precious things

Seem to follow throughout all our lives

After all's said and done I was watching my son

Sleeping there with my bear by his side

So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going

I swear that the old bear whispered

"Boy welcome home"

Believe me if you can

I've finally come back

To the House at Pooh Corner by one

What do you know

There's so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive

Chase all the clouds from the sky

Back to the days of Christopher Robin

Back to the ways of Christopher Robin

Back to the days of Pooh

Quiet, kind, tribute to a friend, mentor, cheerleader and inspiration to so many of the KP Universe.

Nice inclusion of another world of fantasy and childlike wonder to capture the passing of such innocent enchantment, in Christopher's as well as KP's world.

May both live on in our spirits, words and deeds.
