Bring On The Dancing Bears


Bring On The Dancing Bears


A happy circus, life was then;
     bring on those dancing bears,
like ones I used to hold with love
     while saying nighttime prayers.

Or if bad dreams would wake me up,
     bear hugs would calm me down
with confidence that made me feel
     secure in my nightgown.

A happy circus, life was then;
     bring on those dancing bears,
as they skipped in to take their place
     on tea-time party chairs.

As I, with a sweet friend, would sit
     besides our special one,
and pour some tea, just make-believe;
     share bear hugs when all done.

Or just like Goldilocks, we'd play;
      bring on those dancing bears.
Enjoy their porridge, chairs, and beds
     without foreboding cares.
     
Wish, like a circus, life could be,
     as was when I was small;
when grizzly bears and bear hugs were...
     no way, monstrous at all.
