let's sleep in

Shh, Bear …..
you’re snoring again
and it’s so very loud
they’re bound to hear
and come looking for us
and I want to sleep in, Bear
really, really I do
I don’t want them to find us
you know they’ll want me to get up
and shake awake the blossoms
and you know how those buds will complain
because they want to sleep in as well
and it’s too cold to be poking
their little heads up through the ice
I don’t want to wake up, Bear
I really, really don’t
don’t want to go out in the cold
don’t want sweep away the snow
why does it always have to be me?
let Summer do it this year
instead of lolling lazily about
in the sand and sun and sea
we could hide here till she comes
stay snuggled up all cosy
inside your soft warm furry coat
and Bear, if you could snore
just a little bit more quietly
they’ll never find us here
deep inside Winter’s blanket
