Poem - Teddy Bear and Friends - Winner

 
1st Place Winner  - A Lifetime
By Lanie Edwards Murphy
 
 
 A Lifetime

I will remember that day forever

When Mr Humphrey first arrived

A friendship born in innocence

Our childhoods coincide

When sun rise woke our sleepy eyes

Many breakfasts ate in haste

A dash into the sunlight

A scramble over the garden gate

Into the shaded woodland

We ran together free

No worry cares or mishaps

Just happiness born free

Together for my lifetime

The days just ebb so fast

As we sit together quietly

He rests in my comfy lap

Laughter and happiness ring in the air

Through the window we both glance

At small children playing  happily

The same way we did once.

Occasionally one will stop and stare

At this now frail old lady and her bear... 
 
 
 
 
 
2nd Place Winner - If He Could Talk
 
 
 If He Could Talk

He knows my every secret

He knows my every care

He knows my likes and dislikes

He has seen my soul laid bare

If he could talk

What wisdom bear would share!

 
 
 
 
3rd Place Winner - Bootiful
 By Sally Louise Thomas
 
 
 Bootiful

They lay me down upon the grass

The suns rays warmed my nose.

Footfall passed and paused a while.

"Would they pick me"? Who knows.

 

Choosing trinkets, glass and pans

They rummaged through the clutter

The mums and dads they haggled hard

“That was a bargain” they muttered.

 

Then came along a little girl,

with curly golden hair.

Stopped and stared so longingly,

at me the lonely bear.

 

I smiled into her big blue eyes

She plucked me from the ground

She gave the man a 50p

At last a friend I had found.

 
 
 
 
4th Place Winner - Christmas Teddy
 By Jenny Duncan 
 

Christmas Teddy

 

I sit at the window at Christmas time,

The snow is falling, and I hear the clock chime,

The tree is aglow with tinsel and light,

And excited children lay in bed this night.

 

They left cookies for Santa and milk by the tree,

Then raced to bed in breathless glee,

But while everyone else is tucked up in bed,

It is I who sees Santa all dressed in red.

 

He comes down the chimney and winks at me,

And laughing he places his gifts by the tree,

In a flash he is gone but I know him so well,

I hear him fly onward, hear his sleigh bell.

 

When silence descends I climb up each stair,

My paws padding silently, taking great care,

The children are sleeping, I jump on the bed,

Curl up by their side and lay down my head.

 

In the morning we wake at dawns gentle light,

And presents are opened while I watch in delight,

We play together until dinner is ready,

 

Merry Christmas to all, from me the teddy.

 
 
 
  
5th Place Winner - My Bear
By Lyndsey Agostinelli
 
 
 My Bear

My bear is my bestest friend 

To all his needs I will attend

 

My bear is my bestest friend 

For all his faults I will defend

 

My bear is my bestest friend 

I will love him to the very end
