I’m a Bear, Barely There

I’m a Bear Barely There
If you were an animal which would you be?
Would you be big as a horse or small as a flea?
Would you bark like a dog, meow like a cat?
Would you be skinny or very very fat?
Would you slither and hiss much like a snake,
Or swim like a fish across a great lake?
Would you hop like a bunny or fly like a dove?
Would you be grumpy or growl with love?
In the summer I’d be a bird with a flare
But in the winter I’d be a big old bear
Cause then I could grow fat and furry
Sleep all winter and never scurry
Til spring beckoned with a flowery day
I’d shed all that fat then run and play.

If you were an animal – which would you be?

(Hmmm perhaps my three year old daily contact is influencing my style?)  As the days grow cooler I find myself wanting to hibernate.

  1. This is so sweet… I love the honesty and sweetness of it… I don’t want to be any animal… but hey, you never know. 🙂
    I’m finally catching up on everyone’s blog. Thank you for your patience! 🙂

  2. I love this. I hope you shared it with your little friend.
    I would be a monarch butterfly,
    resting on the milkweed briefly to say hi and bye,
    starting my flight in Canada
    to the land of Zapata and the piñata.

    1. Monarch Butterflies are the best of all. The first year I lived in south Texas I thought there was a snow storm coming down the road and instead it was thousands of butterflies! Until then I never k ew these fragile appearing creatures were actually so hearty!

  3. I would like to be a dog..but only if I was one of my dogs. Then I would be fed, watered, and treated kindly. I would be loved, tickled and have someone to play with. I could lie around the house in comfort all day and at night I would get my bowl of milk and a biscuit before I retired for the night in a lovely comfortable warm bed….. No worries, no cares, no problems what more could a dog want?

  4. I love your influence! I felt very happy and young reading this. I would be….I would be a wild Connemara Pony. Roaming Ireland of course! 🙂

  5. Very well done! I would have to be an animal that was a combination of lazy, always hungry, absent-minded, and overly idiotic……. Maybe a fat penguin……. yeah…that’s the ticket….a lazy fat penguin is what I would be… 🙂

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
