Today I have another mask poem. This one is for Robin at A Fondness for Reading. Robin’s a teacher, a grandma, and a lover of books. Robin’s mother is a book lover, too. She has a blog called Mom’s Book Group. Robin’s mom has led a book club for the Mount Olympus Senior Center for ten years!

I’m grizzly bear. I’m fierce and fat…
And dangerous. Remember that!
My teeth are sharp as sabers.
My curvy claws can cut like saws,
And when I prowl the woods I growl
And frighten all my neighbors.
I rule this land. These woods are mine!
I ain’t NOBODY’S valentine!
Don’t think that you can be my friend…
