Teddy Bear Tea: A Children’s Poem

Teddy told rabbit and rabbit told me,

To meet them at three for afternoon tea.

Rabbit said, “Pass the message on,”

And with a hip-hop, she was gone.

Her fluffy white tail,

Easing down the trail.

With a big smile on my face,

I quickened my leisurely pace.

Following her firm command,

I took up the task at hand.

I wandered through the wood,

Doing what I could,

To help spread the word,

Until everyone had heard,

Of the Teddy Bear Tea,

Today, at promptly three.


As the time for tea drew near,

Animals came from there to here.

In wave upon beautiful wave,

From every lake, burrow, and cave.

Deer, chipmunks, and snakes,

With berries, tarts, and cakes,

Came together beneath a tree,

With Teddy, rabbit and me,

For tea at promptly three.

It was a grand sight to see!


Under a sky of sweet baby blue,

We met friends who were honest and true.

In colors of black, brown, and tan,

We feasted, we sang, and we ran.

The party was happy and gay,

Until night overtook the day,

And we could no longer stay.

With happy hearts we gazed up at the moon,

Knowing that we would see each other soon,

For yet another jolly afternoon,

Of tea at promptly three,

With Teddy under the tree.

I live with my loving husband, two children and dog in Philadelphia, PA. I discovered my passion for writing in second grade when I had to write a book report for school. I was so excited to write the report, until my mother told me that I had to write about someone else's book and not my own story. I became indignant and decided that once I finished the book report I would most certainly write my own original story. I have been writing ever since! My self-published book Chris Kringle's Cops was a Finalist in The Reader's Favorite Book Contest for 2016. I am so happy to share this story with you.  My picture book Kamyla Chung and the Creepy Crawlies was given a 5 Star rating by Reader's Favorite Book Reviews in 2017.
