Nostalgically remembering this poem, I would appreciate if somebody could recite every stanza of it... :-D

I'm not quite clear what you're asking. We are a text-based forum. No one here can "recite" anything to the rest of the forum. If you're looking for the full poem, I suggest you Google it.

Even Google could not give me an answer.
I even browsed through "The Oxford Book of Children's Verse" without success. Maybe I am not welcome here.

Are you sure you've got the quote right? It sounds like Dr Seuss to me.

(You are more than welcome here!)

Dr. Seuss was American. He wouldn't have used the word "porridge". The quote looked to me like something Milne might have written.
