High up in the treetops I am so happy to see
A little Black Bear staring right back at me.
All cars stopped, people jumped out.
They were so excited and skipping all about.
Out came the cameras, one, two three.
That cute little bear posed so beautifully.
He smiled and yawned as the news we learned,
And we all snapped our pictures as we took our turn.
The Ranger came by to make sure we were good,
To move those cars along and to check we didn't have food.
People parked their cars, one left the engine runnin'
'Cus they couldn't get over the sight of that bear sunnin'.
Later Gregg said, "Now how would you feel if
He saw us as his next meal?" My answer?
"Why I'd toss my sandwich at you to do a pitcher proud,
Then run like hell while ringing the dinner bell REAL loud!
Gregg knows that Denise can move pretty darned fast when she has to.
More pictures of the bear and our day in the Shenandoah's in my next post.
