Polar Bear Dreams

A poem for kids

A polar bear dreams

Of icy streams
And shimmering salmon schools,

That boil in spring like black flies
And sparkle like riverborne jewels,

A polar bear dreams
Of many things
As he weathers the long winter hours,

With a snowdrift for his pillow
And a blanket of bright, soft stars.
