My mother saw a Dancing Bear
My mother saw a dancing bear By the schoolyard, a day in June The keeper stood with chain and bar And whistle-pipe and played a tune. The bruin lifted up its head. And lifted up its dusty feet, And all the children laughed to see It caper in the summer heat. They watched as for the Queen it died They watched it march. They watched it halt. They heard the keeper as he cried, “Now, roly-poly! Somersault” And then my mother said, there came The keeper with a begging-cup, The bear with burning coat of fur, Shaming the laughter to a stop. They paid a penny for the dance, But what they saw was not the show; Only, in bruin’s aching eyes, Far-distant forests, and the snow.
