‘A perfect messy place’

A perfect messy place

“Let’s make something”,

Said our bear to me,

As she ran out on

The grass with glee.


Her little toes,

Her little feet,

The sun was out,

And what a treat!


From our treasure hunt,

We had some ‘loot’

We’d had fun,

We’d had a hoot!


Making in the garden…

A perfect messy place;

A moment to treasure,

At a leisurely pace.


With paper, glue,

Sparkles, glitter,

Butterflies fluttered,

Birds went twitter.


What a lovely moment,

What a lovely day,

But the best bit?

Hardly any tidying away!

By Mummy Bear
