Poor Little Bear


The little bear
was proud of his fur,
it was brown and sleek
and, really, quite chic.

But with the summer's sun
a fur is not much fun,
and hot enough for two -
Oh, what is a bear to do?


This photo was taken in
a lovely new place for coffee.
I'll show you more!

  2. That's a very sweet bear, Amalia! For me it's too hot even without having a fur, lol.
    Have a lovely week!

  3. I wonder if his brown fur was coffee-coloured (camouflage in a coffee shop) and wonder if he is now a creme caramel bear after being shorn for the summer. ;-)

  7. Cute bear. I would hate the fur in the heat though 😀

  8. oooops......Sweet little bear. Perhaps a long, cool glass of lemonade in your lovely new coffee place would cool him down. =)

  9. What a fun little poem! I look forward to more photos of this cute place.

  10. How very sweet! I often feel for my pups in this heat...if only they could leave their fur behind sometimes!

      if they have the energy, that is :-)

  23. I want to squeeze that bear. So sweet. He can come live with me, Wisconsin can get very chilly. ;-)

    1. If he were mine I would ship him over right now, Carla. I'm confident that you run a bear-friendly household. But, alas, he stayed behind in the coffee shop.

  24. Your poor little bear and my sweet Annie-girl dog would be crying together, I think... the heat is no fun with fur! Where is the snow, my Annie-girl says to me with groans and moans, lol! I like your new coffee spot, it looks very relaxing and comfy :)

  25. Oh, poor bear, but he does look comfy in his pretty chair! xx Karen

  26. Poor darling little bear, but I'm sure he feels much more comfortable without fur during the hot of the Summer, doesn't he ?

    Thanking you so, so much for delighting always my heart, Sweetest Amalia,
    I'm sending my dearest love to you

    XOXO Dany

  27. The adorable little bear is right, to hot for fur, and I like the words that are so true! Hot and humid here, in the 90's already. Happy day........

  29. Dear Amalia,
    It is delightful to know that you
    rescued Coffee Shop Bear, too,
    who may be fuzz less,
    but much loved, I guess,
    like my mom's Hezekiah Bear,
    hug-plucked, fur bare! 🤗

  30. Sweet, sweet little bear! He looks like he needs a hug!

  31. Why Amalia the answer's simple... you write a poem about him becoming a polar bear for the summer to cool off, swimming next to a big ice berg! :)
    Happy days, have fun!

  32. It's probably an American thing, but I have a collection of bears, even a green one that I adopted as my Christmas bear:) Yes, would like to see more of your coffee place:)

  33. What a cutie! I bet he's given out a lot of hugs in his lifetime :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ah, a sweet bear and a mystery spot. I am intrigued!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh he is cute and looks much loved.... I do agree it is way too hot for fur right now or much of anything. He looks like he has found a very nice home to relax :)

  36. So sweet!
    Looking forward to seeing more of this sweet bear!

  37. What a darling little bear...and how absolutely homey that coffee shop looks! I can only imagine how terrible it would be to be covered with fur in the hot summer! Now....about that fan on the cloud...hmmmmm:D Sweet post!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Poor little bear! Perhaps a short spell in the fridge to cool him down?! Your nephew (and his blanket!) are super cute and I really envy your trip to France. xx

    1. I suggested the fridge! But he took offense, thinking it was a time-out, especially as there was no honey to be found there, so we settled for a chair near the fan :-)

  48. Such a cute bear. I do feel his pain. I worry about our little doggies during the summer months.

  54. a very sweet and lovely poem from your beautiful heart dear Amalia !!!

    it is so true that the fur which is cozy and dear during winters is hard to bear in summers yet my sympathy is with little cute bear as without fur he is looking miserable..

    ReplyDelete
  55. Poor little bear, that can't be too nice.
    Fetch him some water and a bucket of ice.
    Sit him right down somewhere that's cool,
    perhaps in the trees by a nice shady pool!

    I look forward to seeing your place for good coffee!

    Hugs,

  57. Awww, this bear reminds me of my childhood teddy. What a nice spot to sip on a cup of tea!

  58. Cute bear! I always chop off my hair in the summer time so I can only imagine how uncomfortable it must be to endure the heat while covered in fur.

    ReplyDelete
  59. A very pretty image Amalia and I love the little bear.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh, you found a new coffee shop! I love when that happens, especially as I'm a coffee lover. Your little brown bear is so cute, Amalia. My mom used to collect teddy bears, and when she passed away, we each got to take one of her bears to keep forever. : )

    I hope you are having fun June days.

  63. Poor bear indeed! This reminds me of an old childhood rhyme ... Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy was he?! ha ha

  78. Sorry this is late Amalia but this little bear reminded me of a much loved bear I had when I was a little girl. It was given to me by an auntie when my cousins no longer played with it. It had started to lose a little bit of fur but it was still a lovely bear. I kept it long after I used to play with it and then my eldest daughter loved it, and by the time my second daughter arrived dear little bear had lost all his fur and most of his stuffing. Your little bear has a lovely face :-) xx

  79. Oh what a sweet bear and lovely poem to match! I hope you enjoyed your coffee Amalia!
