by Silverstein, Shel
...There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire--
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in t...Read More

...The man with the red hat
And the polar bear, is he here too? 
The window giving on shade, 
Is that here too? 
And all the little helps, 
My initials in the sky, 
The hay of an arctic summer night? 

The bear
Drops dead in sight of the window.
Lovely tribes have just moved to the north.
In the flickering evening the martins grow denser.
Rivers of wings surround us and vast tribul...Read More

and floats my shaving brush
and washcloth in the flush...
Dearest I cannot loiter here
in lather like a polar bear.

Recuperating, I neither spin nor toil.
Three stories down below,

Bushed by the late spring snow,

For the best of the lot we hadn't got -- the flea of the polar bear.
Oh, his face was long and his breath was strong, as the Skipper he says to me:
"I wants you to linger 'ere, my lad, by the shores of the Hartic Sea;
I wants you to 'unt the polar bear the perishin' winter through,
And if flea ye find of its breed and kind, there's a 'undred quid for you."
But I shook my head: "No, Cap," I said; "it's your...Read More

...ou can't can Love
 You'll find it from the bottom of the briny deep to the blue above.
 From the Belgin hare to the Polar Bear, and the turtle dove, 
 You can look where you please, But from elephant to fleas,
 You'll never put the lid on Love. 

 You can look where you choose, But from crabs to kangaroos,
 You'll never put the lid on Love. 

 You can look where you like, But from polywogs to pike,
 You'll never put the lid on Love. 

 You can look where you p...Read More
