One-Eyed Bear - Poem by Angela Wybrow
In the stock room, at the charity shop, I saw a teddy bear,
Sat, looking very forlorn and I wondered why he was there.
His fur was very plush, and, unusually, in colour, he was plum,
But, he sat there looking extremely lonely and really rather glum.
He had quite deep set eyes,
And, at first, I didn’t realise.
Only one eye shone, as it caught the light;
The poor teddy bear only had half of its sight.
His remaining eye was as black as coal,
But on the other side, there was now a hole.
I knew he needed an owner just like me,
And I was very kindly given him for free.
In looks, he was really very appealing and ever so soft.
It’s a shame to think that he was someone else’s cast-off
So, now it’s my mission to get him a new eye;
To restore his full sight, I’m now going to try.
He may look slightly different to the others,
But he needs someone to help him to recover.
I couldn’t just leave him there on his own to rot.
Other bears would have got sold and he would not.
He would have been stuck in a bag and thrown away,
But, now with me, in my house, he has come to stay.
At present, his fate is still pending,
But I can foresee a happy ending.
