But wasn't it yesterday? said Pooh a little anxiously.
'Wasn't what yesterday?' said Owl.
'His birthday. Isn't that what you are writing about?'
'Well yes, it does seem like only yesterday,
but I am getting a little confused lately.'
Pooh looked on with a thoughtful expression.
'Well then I think you must make up for your forgetting
to write about it yesterday.
I daresay he is a Forgiving Sort.
Write something in capital letters
and he will hear you shouting.'
So Owl wrote with her long pencil,
HIPY HAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY
And everyone hoped he would like his
nicely painted bedroom when next he came home.
