"Bearing" All Things
If you have a friendship with a bear,©03/16/2016 Carol Welch
you can doubtless see he's cuddly and warm.
Though you may revel in his smile and hair,
only in his own way will he perform.
His deep and gentle growl be like a purr,
his hug great to experience and hold,
but , if you are an assuming her,
your expectations may be far too bold.
So, if you have a friendship with a bear,
just realize, though bears are good and true
if you should get too tangled in his hair ,
that precious bear may simply utter,' Shoo."
