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: This is the stair Where I always stop.
Halfway up the stairs Is not up, And it isn't down. It isn't in the nursery, It isn't in the town. And all sorts of funny thoughts Run rounds of my head: It isn't really Anywhere! It's somewhere else Instead!
