Christmas Bears

amusing for a season,
      bears in a tree!

up there for a reason,
   not planning to leap.

soft stuffed bellies,
      unlikely to hurt,

these bears may fall 
      on you if you
   try to escape.

you don't need to run 
now (don't run soon).

   these bear teeth are
imaginary - december
      also june

he's just a small boy;
      we don't know 
   what he thinks

      about the bears
   who are not there,
or anything indeed.

bear decorations
      don't shatter 
   when they fall

      toddler trees 
don't hurt anybody

      these days i think
   my own toddler tree
might be a fine thing.
