A teddy bear
Is a faithful friend.
You can pick him up at
either end.
His fur is the color
of breakfast toast
And he is always there when you need him most.

Poem for Christmas:Bear head
Little teddy bears love the holidays,
They eat and play for the whole day through,
Christmas is honey,sugar and lots of treats.
Teddy bears love their Christmas tree,
They dance and prance to teddy carols,
The music is great,they dance all night
Most of all they sing to the heavens,
Heaven is hwere teddy bear angels have gold wings that glow.
Christmas choirs sing about the precious bears,
Merry Christmas teddy bears,we love you worldwide.

Counting with the Teddy BearsBear head
1 little bear is home all alone,
2 teddy bears going home fo lunch,
3 teddy bears climbing a big tree,
4 Teddy Bears play hide and go seek,
5 Teddy bears go to the beach to play in the sea,
6 Teddy Bears going to teddy bear school,
7 Teddy Bears love to go fing honey to eat,
8 Teddy Bears learn to count their piggy bank money,
9 Teddy Bears learn how to tell time on their clocks,
10 All of these teddy bears have learned how to count to ten.

Little New Orleans BearsBear head
Teddy bears love the Crescent City by the river,
They romp and stomp around the City Park playground,
Riding the carousel is a teddy bear treat,
Teddy Bears run down to Canal Street in the heat,
They meet their teddy bear friends to catch Mardi Gras beads and eat,
Eating is a favorite teddy bear treat in The Big Easy,
They grab chicken and beignets to eat.
New Orleans Bears have fun in the city in the sun.

Teddy Bear SleighBear head

Snowflakes fly around the sleigh,
Teddy bears love adventure on their sleds.
Daddy Bear holds the ropes to guide his flight,
Mama and baby bear sit together tight.
Laughter rings out when they curve the snowy hills,
Teddy bear sleigh rides are a winter thrill.
Scarves of red and green plaid surround their furry necks,
Hoods of fur are keeping the winter air outside theif heads,
Riding in the winter sleigh makes a fun day,
That's the teddy bear way.

Teddy Bear Soldiers

Bears march in their uniforms of blue,green,and gold.
Big,little bears of many wars.
They march proud and straight,
Smiling and waving to all on the parade route.
Proud to serve,heartfelt to do things the American way.
Men and women show their respect by waving
red,white,and blue flags,
Teddy bear soldiers march on Veteran's Day,
It is a proud day to do life the teddy bear ways.

My Bears

Mr. Humphrey Bear snores all night
Mr. Fluffy is a pretty sight,
Our homes are full of all kinds of bears
Not all the same,
Each one has a different name
They have a style of their own
They sit on tables together,
All ready to tell their stories,
When you see the smile on their faces

You have no worries.
My bears are from all different places
You can see the happiness on their faces
I love Mr. Georgie Bear in his red pajamas
Miss Ballerina dances in her pink fare
My Teddies are my friends
They will be with me everywhere.
My teddies are in view morning, noon & night
To me, that is alright, Teddy Bears in my life!

Teddy bear
If I told you, "I think you're pretty"
Would you love me and never let go
Would you sew my button back on
Please sit down and tell me so

If I told you that I love you
Would you hold me so tight
That stuffing would come out of me
And fluff me up at night

If I told you nothing at all
Would you still gaze upon my face
Throughout darkness and over time
In a lover's warm embrace

If I told you, "I'll go a great distance"
Would you follow me without a care
Or, should I stay right beside you
And be your great big teddy bear

"By Rennie Helder"

Teddy Bear Paws
I placed my memories in teddy bear's paws,
My fondest dreams, my wishes and all.
I'll never let go of those tender years,
And you, my friend, through giggles and tears.

I recall the gaze of your black button eyes,
Your comforting look and knowing surprise.
My deepest secrets, I shared with you,
Old bear, my friend, you've always been true.

You hold the magic of those wonderful years,
You soothe my heart; you calm my fears.
My childhood stories upon your ears,
You listened with love, forever dear.

I placed my cares into your paws,
With frogs and toads with warts and all.
Old bear, you've been my steadfast friend,
From my very first step to each day's end.

Through ups and downs throughout my life,
You've been my pillow; my moonlit night,
The bear who knows just where I've been,
Who stood by me through thick and thin.

Whenever I see your adorable face,
I'm back in my childhood, the state of grace,
Recalling the times when life was a game,
When days were sunny; when it never rained.

Now, I've grown up in stature and size,
With life quite serious, I'm supposed to be wise,
I'll leave my cares by the door-outside,
And look for the bear with arms opened wide.

A teddy bear holds a young child's smiles,
And dreams of queens and far away miles,
Of tea cups and parties out on the lawn,
And Golden Books treasured when summers were long.

And I, I shall be forever young.......

By Sharon E. Licht

There once was a Teddy Bear 
There once was a teddy bear,
Strong and big.
He was bare but he didn't wear a wig
He was sewn together twice,
He wasn't new,
But I still loved him through and through.
"By Allison Ginsburg and Theodore bear"

A Teddy Bear Poem 

My teddy has a lot of fluff,
He is round fat and tough,
I hug him every day,
And I get up and I play,
Sometimes I get a bit tired ,
So I snuggle down with my teddy,
And cuddle him every night.

"by Lizzy, age 9"

If Teddy Bears Ruled The World

If teddy bears ruled the world,
Oh my. what a wonderful place.
Everyone would be happy
There would be a smile on every face.

We would picnic every Sunday
At our favourite old oak tree.
We would sing and dance and prance about,
Just playing joyfully.

We would all be nice to each other
And always lend a hand.
Ready with a bear hug,
We would always understand.

We would all be happy when something nice
Happened for one of our friends
And our friendships would last forever.
Nothing would cause them to end.

We would be kind to everyone,
Not just those in our own home,
But to everyone throughout our world,
Wherever we may roam.

Yes, if teddy bears ruled the world,
What a wonderful life this would be.
Our hearts would always be happy
As we danced by the old oak tree.

"By Janis Miner"

My Teddy Bear

He sits upon his pillowed throne
A joyous smile upon his face.
And though his ears may seem outgrown
He carries them with pride and grace.

He's never cross or quick to carp
A friend in need is he to me.
When human tongues are mean and sharp
My Teddy gives me sympathy.

To him I always bare my soul
He lifts me when I'm feeling low.
And when I brag and miss my goal
He never says, 'I told you so.'

My friends many titter gleefully
And some may tease, but I don't care.
I hope that I will never be
Too old to love my Teddy Bear.
