Down beside the old Teddy Bear Tree
if you look very closely you might see
one large gnome in a big blue hat,
two grumbling beetles and a purple cat,
three tiny fairies, pretty in pink,
four small dragons who are friendlier than you think,
five bright candles and six green books,
seven feather pens borrowed from some blue rooks,
eight naughty piglets all rolling in the mud,
nine orange cows all chewing on their cud,
a blanket and some treats, a pillow and a chair
for the magical picnic you and I can share.
inspired by a photo of a tree taken that I swear contains a teddy bear spirit.
