Halfway down the stairs
Is a stair where I sit:
There isn't any other stair quite like it.
I'm not at the bottom,
I'm not at the top:
So this is the stair where I always stop.

Halfway up the stairs
Isn't up, and isn't down.
It isn't in the nursery, it isn't in the town:
And all sorts of funny thoughts
Run round my head:
"It isn't really anywhere! It's somewhere else instead!"

A.A. Milne

What an extraordinary combination - the cat wants to play, the head is trying to maintain a dignified distance. I'm thinking 'A cat can look upon a queen'
Colour for me.
