Wonderful Bears


The wonderful bears in the zoo
Do wonderful tricks—they do!
They stand on their heads
And never fall;
They clap their paws
And catch a ball,
Then dance about
And pirouette
And bob and bow
Like a marionette.
And I know a few
Bright children who
Can’t do what the wonderful
Bears in the zoo,
With the greatest of ease,
All manage to do.
Well,
Can YOU?
