Our Loose Blogging consortium of Anu, Ashok, Conrad, Gaelikaa, Ginger, Judy, Magpie 11, Maria,Ramana and I, well those of us not on holiday or distracted by the calls of work, study or family concerns, turn our thoughts to the topic for the week, chosen today by Maria or should that be Judy?

If I could be anything, I would be…

I wish I was a Teddy
Sitting on the bed
Waiting for my Elly
To lay down her weary head

I’d listen very carefully
As she told me all the tales
Of plays and books and games
That filled her busy days

I’d snuggle in beside her
And share secrets great and small
As we drifted off to dreamland
All cosy snug and warm

We would waken in the morning
All wet hot from the heat
I’d watch as she prepared for school
Then on the pillow sit and wait –
And wait a little longer
until I heard that sound
The pit-ter-pat of little feet that told me
My Elly was on home ground.
