Barry's Bad Week
by Kathy Warnes
A soft, furry, brown bear named Barry,
Had two large feet so wide and hairy,
When he came in from his back yard play,
He tracked in new colors each week day
On Monday morning to Barry's dread,
His footprints glowed fire engine red.
On Tuesday when Barry walked around,
His footprints turned a chocolate brown.
On Wednesday Barry felt quite mellow,
Leaving his tracks of sunshine yellow.
On Thursday Barry counted one, two,
He left tracks of both orange and blue!
On Friday night from a charcoal sack,
Barry smeared footprints of shiny black!
On Saturday Barry stepped in beans,
Leaving giant footprints of bright green
Sunday running up and down the halls,
.Barry smacked down prints of purple paws.
Mama Bear made Barry mop the floor,
She threw his footprints out the back door,
They tracked a rainbow across the sky,
Can you name the colors marching high?
