Poohsticks is a sport first mentioned in The House at Pooh Corner, a Winnie-the-Pooh book by A. A. Milne.

For the beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth over and around us lies:
Christ our God, to Thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child (and grandchild!),
Friends on earth and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild:
Christ our God, To Thee we raise this our our hymn of grateful praise.
