Ma, Pa and Baby bear


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The Necessity” by Alice B. Fogel: siblings, meek, prowls, spring, inhale, fear, pressed, remind, sleep, hungry, lamb, wolves

Ma, Pa and Baby bear
Out of fear of the wolves
Sleeping on my bed
Baby’s siblings not there
Hungry in the shed

Ma, Pa and Baby bear
As meek as spring lamb
Cuddly as could be
I pressed my nose on them
I am full of glee

Ma, Pa and Baby bear
Feel the inhale, exhale
Running from the wolves
As they forget the prowls
Or could be werewolves

Ma, Pa and Baby bear
Still asleep on my bed
Oh bless them, I say
For they had such a fright
The wolves on their way*

  1. I like this. I also like the new forms you introduce us to each week. Unlike last week’s one, this one I could get a grip with. I wonder how they think up the name though. Last week’s form was named after the two creators. This weeks seems to be a couple of words found in a dictionary and added together.

    Thank you 🙂
