Poems about Teddy Bears

Here are some poems dedicated to Teddy Bears.


I love my little Teddy Bear,
He's such a friendly fellow,
His fur, beautiful and soft, 
Is neither brown or yellow.
He plays but never quarrels with me,
And keeps me gay and jolly,
And I don't have to punish him 
As often as my Dolly.
He's such a quiet little chap,
No impish schemes he hatches,
He never barks, he has no fleas,
At least he never scratches.

Eula Smith-Zimmerman

As they left for London at noon that day
They thanked the king for the royal way.
He had entertained and this said they,
"If you'll visit us int the U.S.A.,
When we get back to our home again
And stop with us in our mountain den,
We'll give you food and naught to do
And let you sleep all winter through
And dream of castles and suck your paw,
It beats all the kingdoms you ever saw.
The king just laughed as the train pulled out,
But he said to himself as he turned about,
"It would help me carry my country's cares
If every home had Teddy Bears."
Anonymous exerpt

I wish I had a Teddy Bear
To sit upon my knee.
I'd take him with me everywhere,
To cuddle up with me.
I'd scorn young men,
No lover then
My lot in life shoud share,
They might go to Jericho
If I'd a Teddy Bear.

From Pelissier's Follies- 1909

I'm really Edward George St Clare
Aubrey Adolphus de la Bear
Son and heir of the Baron Bear
But you may call me Teddy Bear.
So please, squeeze me, I don't care.

Inscribed underneath a drawing of a brown velvet 
bear in an autograph album belonging to Mrs. James Chartham
near Canterbury, England, 6 Febuary, 1912.

Go to sleep, my Teddy Bear
Close your little button eyes
And let me smooth your hair.
It feels so soft and silky that,
I'd love to cuddle down by you
Go to sleep my darling Teddy Bear.

Anon., lullaby

The Teddy Bear's Picnic

The meadow's green, the flowers sweet,
and we have many good things to  eat.
Ah, what a day! What lovely air!
How nice to be a Teddy Bear!

Pass the bread and pass the cheese.
Be sure to taste the chicken please.
Have an apple, plum or pear!
Such fun to be a Teddy Bear!

Bert's got his sailor shirt,
and Mae and Sue look awfully pert
in matching hats! I say! Such flair!
How fine to be a Teddy Bear!

"This afternoon I shall recall
for all my life," says Tiz to Paul.
"A perfect time without a care!"
How grand to be a Teddy Bear!

Anne Geddes

The Words to The Teddy Bear's Picnic Song

If you go down down to the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise

For ev'y bear that ever there was
Is sure of a treat today.
There's lots of marvelous things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees wher nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as they please
'Cause that's the way the Teddy Bears have their picnic

If you go down to the woods today
You'd better not go alone
It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home

For ev'y bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for Teddy Bears
The little Teddy Bears are having a lovely time today
Watch them, catch them unawares
And see them picnic on their holiday.

See them gaily gad about
They love to play and shout;
They never have any care;

At six o'clock their Mummies and Daddies,
Will take them home to bed,
Because they're tired little Teddy Bears.
