The bear is chomping in the meadow
As he lumbers through the grass.
He is on his way to fish the creek
For the salmon runs of old.
As he splashes through the water
He spies another grizzly bear ahead.
He roars a challenge, then charges strong
Determined to claim his rightful spot.
Growls and roars rent through the air
As they swing with left and right.
Then one backs down; he’s had enough
The other wins his spot.
