Make Believe

Another generation takes
on role of Mistress Puppeteer
and brings to life a world
once alive 25 years before

She chooses small brown
plastic bears strewn over
table and sets them inside
toy schoolhouse to pretend

Little Bear, let me go
on the swing first,” calls
out a bear before another
cries from the seesaw,
“Play with me.”

Mistress Puppeteer commands
bear students to dance until -

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle

A small bell positioned
in building’s tower
marks end of recess
and bears march inside
where lessons begin
