Mrs. Pooh Bear

(for Bubba)

 

She can’t say

if it was love at first sight

but she will say

she fell in love with him alright.

 

She did insist –

with his red shirt down to there

who could resist

that yellow fluff-stuffed bear?

 

“I want to marry him,”

she told daddy her plan.

 

“You can’t marry him,

because he is an old man.

He is an old man,”

that was daddy’s firm stance,

“An old, old man

who doesn’t wear pants!

I can’t allow it.”

 

Daddy’s words made her blue.

But she had to accept it –

she’d never marry Winnie the Pooh.
