So fragile your smile 

So amazing the feeling 

So brief your moment

Bear’s Christmas Tree Adventure 🧸

Photo by Susanne Jutzeler on Pexels.com

I’ve always loved cuddly bears! This week I’ve written a poem for children about a toy bear called Bernie.

‘Jump up

Onto the box

Bernie’

What can 

You see there?

🧸🧸🧸

Towering above

Is a large 

Christmas tree

With sparkling 

Decorations 

🎄🎄🎄

Suddenly 

Ssss-N-A-P!

Bernie

Hangs from

A large branch

🧸🧸🧸

As he

Starts to

Climb down 

Another

Ssss-N-A-P!

🎄🎄🎄

Bernie lands

Feet first

On the ground 

He’s clutching 

A silver star

⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s a

Magical star

from the

Top of the 

Christmas tree

#Paris is such an magical city at night. During lockdown I have been learning French.  It’s given me a new perspective for writing poetry.  I have also added an English translation below.

Étoiles dans le ciel nocturne

De l’obscurité

Un grain de lumière

Brille

Blanc éclatant

Capture vivement

Le clair de lune

Illuminer votre visage

C’est incroyable de

Témoin peut-être

Milliers

Des années-lumière

S’étendant dans le

Distance

Pour l’éternité

Un spectacle magique

Regarder les étoiles

Dans le ciel nocturne

Stars in the night sky

From darkness 

A speck of light

Shines out

Brilliant white

Vividly captures 

The moonlight 

Illuminating your face

It’s incredible to

Witness possibly 

Thousands 

Of light years 

Stretching into the

Distance 

For eternity 

A magical sight

Watching Stars 

In the night sky
