Halfway Down Class 7 English Lesson 16

Halfway down the stairs
Is a stair where I sit.
There isn’t any other stair
I 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,
Isn’t down;
It isn’t in the nursery,
It isn’t in the town.
And all sorts offunny thoughts
Run round my head :
“It isn’t really
Anywhere Instead !”

Halfway Down Class 7 English का हिंदी अनुवाद

आधे रास्ते नीचे की ओर
एक सीढी है जहाँ मैं बैठता हूँ।
कोई अन्य सीढ़ी नहीं है
काफी पसंद है।
मैं नीचे नहीं हूं,
मैं शीर्ष पर नहीं हूं;
तो यह वह सीढ़ी है जहाँ
मैं हमेशा रुकता हूं।
आधी सीढि़यां चढ़ी
ऊपर नहीं है,
नीचे नहीं है;
यह नर्सरी में नहीं है,
यह शहर में नहीं है।
और सभी प्रकार के अपमानजनक विचार हैं
मेरे सिर को गोल घुमाएं:
“यह वास्तव में नहीं है
इसके बजाय कहीं भी! “

A.A. Milne
