Crossing Big Black Mountain
Early on Sunday morn,
A young black bear beside the road
Looking a bit forlorn.

The sky was very cloudy,
The rain was setting in,
The bear in search of food,
Looking kind of thin.

Near the Kentucky-Virginia border,
The bear crossed the road,
Seeing this miracle of Mother Nature
Was a sight for young and old.

The bear looked and posed,
Before heading over the hill,
Experiencing God’s creation
Was certainly surreal.
