A wild grizzly bear

a wild grizzly bear
had spent the winter without food
roaming through the blizzard
sleeping on ice and snow

he had not found food
he had lived on the frozen grass
that grew under the winter trees

then he came upon a cottage
warm and brightly lit
and he roamed around it
watching and waiting for his chance

then the door opened
and out stepped a young girl
as pretty as the springtime
and she took him inside
and there was an empty chair beside a fire
and a hot meal for him to eat

I cannot eat your food
I cannot accept your hospitality
For I was roaming around your cottage
Planning to take it with tooth and claw

But she took his face in her hands and she kissed him
He fell back in confusion
The candle flickered in the draft
And lo and behold he was a young man

The candle flickered and went out
And the girl was plunged into madness
