The Black Bear

In the summer, fall, and spring
the black bear sports and has his fling,
but winter sends him straight indoors and there he
snores… and snores… and snores.

The Performance

Hardly a day goes by
Without the sound of the crowd
Rumbling along climbing into stands

Getting ready to watch the show
Taking out handkerchiefs
Smiling sneezing coughing a lot

When will it all end — and how?
In fire or in snow?
