One morning at six thirty,
The birds were singing loudly,
Which was quite beyond a joke.
He groaned "I like nice singing,
But itís only early yet,
And if you keep disturbing me,
Itís something youíll regret."
"Iím only very little,
So I need a lot of rest,
Why donít you come back later,
I think that would be best!"
But his feathered friends ignored him,
And simply went on singing,
"Iím getting up!" snapped Bear at last,
"My ears have started ringing."
"Iíve pleaded with you several times,
But as this noise wonít cease,
I think Iíll take a little walk,
So I can get some peace!"
He got dressed very quickly,
Then crept out of the house,
And headed for the countryside,
As quiet as a mouse.
When he reached his destination,
Our Chum still wore a frown,
Then suddenly he noticed,
That the fair had come to town,
As he took a look around him,
He grinned from ear to ear,
"Fantastic," he laughed happily,
"Iím thrilled that I came here."
"Since no one else is looking,
I can try out all the rides,"
And in no time whatsoever,
He was whizzing down the slides
Then as he started riding,
On the wooden Roundabout,
Geronimo was shocked to hear,
Some desperate sobs ring out!
"Oh not another blip!" he sighed,
"This really is so trying,
At first Iím woken by the birds,
Now somebody is crying!"
"I Ďm having lots of fun right now,
But as they are in trouble,
I think that I should do my best,
To help them at the double!"
Bear climbed straight off the roundabout,
And then he walked around,
At first the damsel in distress,
Was nowhere to be found.
But just as he was giving up,
On his impromptu search,
He spotted a young lady,
Whoíd been left right in the lurch!
She was very, very pretty,
But big tears ran down her cheeks,
He thought; "That is the saddest sight,
Iíve seen in many weeks.
I think she has been shattered,
By a very sudden blow.
So I think Iíll go straight over,
And say a quick hello!"
Our Furry friend went over,
And told her "Please donít cry,
It spoils your pretty features,
And that I canít deny.
You might have got your problems,
But they canít be all that bad,
And so to wipe your tears away,
I would be very glad!"
But instead of feeling better,
Just like he hoped she would,
The lady wailed much louder still,
Which really was no good.
"Youíre very kind," she blubbered,
"But Iím lonely as can be,
The people at this fairground,
Have all got it in for me!"
I do my best to charm them,
But they always knock me down,
So thatís the simple reason,
Why I wear this great, big frown!.
In case you didnít realise,
My Christian nameís Aunt Sally,
I want a special someone,
With whom I can be pally!"
Geronimo was most upset,
And smiled "That canít be true,
Some people must appreciate,
The super job you do.
The reason that they tease you,
Is because you are their chum,
So there isnít any reason,
For you to feel so glum."
He smiled at her and added,
"Iím going for a walk,
And if youíd like to join me,
We can carry on our talk!"
Aunt Sally was delighted.
And stood up right away,
She laughed "It would be wonderful,
To stretch my legs today!"
As they ambled through the open field,
She squealed in sheer delight,
"My goodness me," she chuckled,
"It seems that you were right.
"I just sat there feeling gloomy,
And my problems magnified,
But now Iíll take advantage.
Of this lovely countryside!"
Bear put his arm around her,
And then grinned from ear to ear,
Then he answered "Thatís fantastic,
I just knew youíd like it here.
I was hoping I could show you,
That your life is not that bad,
And now my little plan has worked,
Iím really, really glad!"
The pair continued walking,
And having lots of fun,
But then without a warning,
Up came the morning sun.
"Oh golly," cried Aunt Sally,
"I think Iíd better go,
It wonít be very long before,
The crowds arrive you know!"
She kissed him on the forehead,
Then to her post she hurried,
And Teddy was relieved to see,
She didnít look so worried.
"Iíll come back soon," he whispered.
As he disappeared from sight,
"But I have got a feeling,
That your future will be bright!"
As our Hero headed homewards,
His new friend gave a wink,
As if to say "How funny,
Thatís exactly what I think!"
