Poetry Collections by a Bear of Little Brain

“When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh.

Loose rhymes

Loose rhymes from a Bear of Little Brain is my poetry-page. I came to the same conclusion as Pooh Bear did in the quote, above. So, the poetry-page contains poems that have not been collected into a book and are about anything that comes to mind. “Thingish” poems, in other words. Pooh-Bear is a Bear of Very Little Brain, and I am a Bear of Little Brain (a bit less dim than Pooh).

About the header: The teddy bear in the picture is my dear old bear. He was given to my twin brother when we were born. He got the bear and I got a doll. When my brother died in 1994, I found and kept his bear. I take good care of the old bear, since it is the only thing of my brother that I have. He has no value, a cheap toy was all my parents could afford. And he has no name, it is just “Bear”. But as you can see, he has been loved so much his fur is quite worn off. His nose also has a chip out of it, but I mended that in the photo. A bear has his dignity, after all. Bear might not be worth a cent, but to me he is invaluable and irreplaceable.
