What Bears Know
Big Bear remembers his rule: keep out of sight,
but sometimes he forgets very late at night
when clouds cover the sky and block out the moon and stars.
Bear creeps inside the walls and pads about downstairs.
At night the house is dreaming. Everything’s quiet and still…
until ZZZzzzzz gh! gh! gh!
Big Bear wonders if the humans are ill.
ZZZzzzzz gh! gh! gh!
Bear strokes and licks the sleepers better.
Now they dream a little deeper,
sometimes wake up a little wetter,
always get up none the wiser.
Bear slips outside the walls by morning,
careful not to trip on his scarf,
obeying his first rule to keep out of sight,
and never coming out to play - unless it is at night.
What Us Bears REALLY Know
As you may know,
We put on a show,
As a bear,
To a hare...
It may be so,
That we do know,
The secret behind honey....
Try not to itch,
For that money is thee,
From inside a tree,
We also know,
To eat a Honey Nut Cheerio!
We love that food,
For I am in the mood....
And of course we know,
To put on a show,
As a dancing bear,
For a hare!
