Dancing Bears

Bears coming through… graceful giant bears coming through. Twirling, swirling…they waltz: One, two, three. One, two, three. Laughing bears dancing together, right on through. Off they go!!!! 06/14/15 Entry for Contest: Shall We Waltz? Host: Kim Merryman *in the Air Force we had a program for Airmen who were struggling to meet the physical fitness requirements, which we referred to in a sort of tongue-in-cheek manner as "The Dancing Bears" program.

Preston, congrats on your placement in my contest! I love your humorous poem. Thanks for the explanation. I had never heard that term before and my husband is retired AF. Well done! Love, KIm

Thanks for hosting the contest, Kim. I'm pretty new to poetry, so it's fun to flex my brain a little trying out new forms. =) I appreciate the placement as well, of course. =)
