The Teddy Bear

The teddy bear sits all alone On the shelf where he was thrown Long ago by a child fair Who no longer visits there The little girl has grown Each day watching on his own Through his button eyes once sewn At the bedroom door they stare The teddy bear How long he's waited is unknown Since nursery rhymes she would intone While rocking with him in her chair With dolls tea parties they would share The teddy bear

    Now that the little girl has grown, I hope she does not have a male acquaintance that treats her like a teddy bear. This is a good write Bob.

    Congratulations on your fine win, Bob. Cute poem. I always wanted a teddy bear but I never did get one. My elder sister did though. Blessings, Maureen

    When I was a kid, I never carved a jack o lantern, so I carved one when I was 50. It's never too late to go back and experience the things we missed. Go for it Maureen.

    Bob, You have the kindest and most aware mind on the soup who can see life across the spectrum and the years and better yet you are able to share it with us. I have so often thought of those lonely stuffed animals in the corner of the spare room and wondered if they were lonely just as you have. Bravo Bob, Your Friend Craig BTW A new Toy Story perhaps?

    Makes me think of the little teddy bear that was once my son's....played with still......by my grandchildren, poor old thing is beaten up, chewed upon, raggedy and has only one eye....but oh, how he has been loved!! Sweet poem!!! Congratulations, again Bob!!
