Bear brother's been in hospital He's had another bout Of lack of equilibrium But now, clap hands, he's out. Other brother's steadiness Is questionable, alas, And generally when puffing up A hill, he's short on gas. Youngest brother Merry Ted Is thus far not afflicted He has slight problems lower down Yet limbs are not constricted. He thinks he is a lucky bear Enjoying simple pleasures Fair health, kind friends, good family Are what our Ted most treasures. Schemes to build up pounds and pence Concern him not a jot He far prefers to dip his paw In runny honey pot.
