Bear Cave



Not sure what way to turn
Tired, confused and hungry
I have to find a place to sleep
In this snow storm the snow begins
To heep.....
I walk another mile to find a cave of a bear
Hungry like me his look was a winner
I think he seen me as his hibernation last
Dinner.
So I moved fast but he caught me at last
Much to my surprise , he appeared before
My eyes...
No fear had I , it was an old man in a bear
Skin coat, telling me it was safe at the cave
Plenty to eat he said he was there my life he
Did save...
We weathered the storm , warm, full belly's plenty
Of sleep, that bear saved two men that day, things
Are not as the seem, the old man was brave, he
He knew about the land, it wasn't for him I would
Not be here to stand..
