Now We Are Five

  • When I was one I had just begun.

    When I was two I was nearly new.

    When I was three I was hardly me.

    When I was four I was not much more.

    But now I am five I am alive alive!

    And when I am six?

    Who knows? But it will be clever.

    Perhaps I'll be five forever and ever.
