Play

Play , they say is important in a

little ones life

and with christmas there’s plenty to engage with

yet – what do you find them playing with?

Possibly – it’ll be the blocks

lined around the living room

and perhaps – it could be the teddy bears

yet , no it’s not them

Perhaps – theyre playing with puzzles

lots of those wrapped up this year

alongside the tin toy trucks and aeroplanes

you know – its not them either

Positioned in the middle of the lounge floor

located away from the christmas tree

a cardboard box with wrapping paper

yet with all those toys – it’s their favourite plaything.

Bears

Bear, Created in Painter by Inky

WQWWC #51: Toys/Play

Furry old bear

old as me

sat in his favourite spot

Pondering what’s for tea

as he follows his owner

down the stairs

Honey , Milk or Chocolate

perfect proposition for

afternoon treats

Teddy bear picnics

on summer mornings – favourite

time of day

Rescued from the reject bin

Salford, 17th November 2017

Patchedupbear

 

Imperfection

A little dusty here or there

his coat could do with a mend

stuffing coming from a paw

this old bear needs a friend

 

See all the animals are off to the shops

apart from those that look like they’ve been dropped

now little bear, he wouldnt really mind

if the factory would be a little bit kind

 

A button for his jacket

and some thread for his paw

and a chance to be hugged

nothing less, nothing more

 

But just as factory is being shut down

a little lad is being shown round

over by bin – he sees the bear’s frown

and little bears luck is turned around

 

For in days to come, what fun there will be!

With new tops and buttons – and teddy bears teas…

He may be imperfect – said the boy as he roamed

but he’s my favorite bear – as they head off for home!
