Furry Bear - Poem by Alan Alexander Milne

If I were a bear,
And a big bear too,
I shouldn’t much care
If it froze or snew;
I shouldn’t much mind
If it snowed or friz—
I’d be all fur-lined
With a coat like his!

For I’d have fur boots and a brown fur wrap,
And brown fur knickers and a big fur cap.
I’d have a fur muffle-ruff to cover my jaws,
And brown fur mittens on my big brown paws.
With a big brown furry-down up to my head,
I’d sleep all the winter in a big fur bed.

    and not the cold matters
    there is an adaptation mechanism
    but to know how to catch those fish
    that went against the current
    and the people did not restrain the waters with their wickedness
    and selfishness
    don't expect a shotgun because you're a bear
