OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Christmas is over

the January sales are on

The Teddies in the toy shop

are leaving one by one OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Already in the window

a space it has appeared

where once a little teddy sat

he’s not reappeared! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The other teddies worry

What if no one comes?

Will they stay forever

waiting for their mums?.. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A noise ! A hand ! a Shuffle!

A voice excited ask’s

” Is he for me? Oh thank you dad”

” I think I’ll call him Bart!” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The afternoon is waning

and soon there’s only one

Sitting waiting patiently

will she get a mum? OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShe listen’s to the noises

that are getting less

The shop behind goes quiet

It’s closing is her guess! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Oh No” thinks the panda
sitting on her own
“was that the door closing?
Am I all alone!”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShe gets up in a hurry
wondering what to do
Surely she’ll not have to stay
Alone and cold and blue!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But Wait! The phone is ringing
the owner’s coming back
She’s saying there is only one
All Rosy pink and Black

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And so the tale ends happy
The little bear is gone
To be dropped off along the way
She’s meeting her new mum.
