Pooh of Walden Pond (3651 words)
Pooh is in fact a Transcendentalist, and a perfect model for children and adults that want a happy, peaceful life in harmony with both themselves and nature, free of strife and materialistic worries.
Pooh is content as long as he visits with his friends regularly and has a "smackeral of something" around eleven o'clock each day, and hums a "new hum" every so often.
Pooh and Piglet decide to celebrate the beauty of living and of friendship and go to wish Rabbit, "whose life was made up of Important Things" (Milne Corner 30), a happy Thursday, but Rabbit is disappointed because he feels that they have come with no other reason than just wanting to visit with him.
