.the bear.

said to come to bed quick
lay down and rest
the warm blanket cosy

make a nest
a bit screwed round
and hopefully it will all go away

i said to the bear, i said that
the washing was left out and I had not washed up yet

dear bear said it did not matter
that care will be taken
and we will not tell the little ones
for fear of worrying them

we watched the sun go down together
