Terrific Tattered Teddy

My teddy is not new,
but he feels just right.
One eye is missing,
a button's sewed on tight.

Teddy's fur is thread bare,
his paw-toe is stitched up.
Nothing's better than
Teddy all loved up!

Irreplaceable is a loved-to-pieces teddy!

You are so very welcome, Mr. Cornelius. I'm so glad you visited my blog and saw that I, too, am a teddy lover. (my teddy's name is Cindy Bear :)

Bridget Magee said...

I so agree, Donna! I still have my childhood teddy and my youngest still sleeps with her well worn stuffed dog. = )

Yes, Jama and Mr. Cornelius are appreciative of Teddy Poetry. =)

Thank you, Michelle! Sometimes the worst looking toy is a sign of the most loved. =)

I have a very loved bear from my childhood, and collected many for years. It was hard to part with them. Maybe I need to find myself a cousin of Mr. Cornelius!
