Ju-Julia and Mikie-Mike Visit Teddy-Land
At Ju-Julia’s tea party sat her stuffed toys one and all,
Bo Bo bear the guest of honour, sat there straight and tall.
As she poured imaginary tea into plastic cups of blue she heard an awful racket by the fence and Mikie-Mike came crashing through.
Now Mikie-Mike was sometimes cruel calling names to hurt Ju-Julia’s feelings this is true, but in the country friends are scarce and you must learn to just make do.
“Ju-Julia why do you play all in a world of your own, with your old stuffed toys and animals, why don’t you play Nintendo like all the other kids instead of being all alone?”
“Oh Mikie-Mike they talk to me of a place where no ones sad, and nobody is bad, a place I wish was mine, a place where teddys walk and talk and hug me all the time.”
“Bah fiddlesticks and bah humbug Ju-Julia my little friend, I doubt if there’s a Teddy-land awaiting round the bend.”
“Oh Mikie-Mike come hold my hand hold one of Teddys too, close your eyes and repeat my magic spell I’m going to teach to you.”
So Ju-Julia and Mikie-Mike and the teddy beer made three, held hands and closed their eyes as well and Ju-Julia began to speak and say her of magic spell.
“I believe in Santa, I believe in reindeer too, I believe in the Easter bunny and the eggs he leaves for me and you, I believe in the fairies and the things we just can’t see and I believe in magic cause my teddy Bo Bo said it’s true.”
Now Ju-Jjulia and Mikee-Mike felt the room begin to twirl and whirl and Mikee-Mike felt Bo Bo’s hand begin to curl, then stir within his own, and I think he was a little frightened and wished he had gone home.
“Oh Ju-Julia please tell me what is starting to unfold, why do I feel all warm and fuzzy, but my nose is kinda cold.”
“Oh Mikie-Mike don’t be afraid you’ve come to Teddy-land, open your eyes and open your mind and see who holds your hand.”
Mikie-Mike though still afraid, opened one eye than the other, and a gasp escaped his lips and he almost cried out for his Mother.
Ju-Julia no longer wore a dress of frills and ruffles pink, instead she had a shaggy coat of fur that made Mikie-Mike begin to think, of her stuffed toys and teddy bears then Mikie-Mike’s heart began to sink.
For sitting there beside him smiled a real live Bo Bo bear, and Mikie-Mike was startled and shivered now with real true fear.
But Ju-Julia only laughed and Bo Bo bear began to giggle too, it was then that Mikie-Mike realized that he was fuzzy too.
Bo Bo Bear and Ju-Julia each took a hand of Mikie-Mike saying “Let’s stroll on down to Candy Lane, if we hurry we might even see the Chocolate Cho-cho Train.”
Along the lane instead of flowers grew candy canes and lollipops, and the road was paved with licorice, now isn’t that just tops.
“Oh Ju-Julia it truly is a magic land and now I think I understand, why you always like to play with your stuffed toys almost everyday.”
“Yes Mikie-Mike now you know why I do what I, because if you believe in magic dreams can come true
So they skipped and laughed all down Candy Lane, then caught a ride on the chocolate Choo-choo Train, where they nibbled milk chocolate so dark and sweet and waved at all the bears they’d meet.
They came to a castle upon a hill, made of rock candy and caramel, and at a moat of soda pop they stopped for a drink then hurried inside quick as a blink.
Another Teddy led them in and showed them to their room, where they could take a little nap after eating ice cream and cake for lunch at noon.
“Ju-Julia this beds so soft like floating on a cloud, he bounced up on it, then laid down and then he yawned so very loud.”
“Mikie-Mike its soft you know, because it’s made of real marshmallow. Now, close your eyes cause now it’s time to return from where we came, sweet dreams is what it’s all about so say twice my Bo Bo’s name”
As Bo Bo bear stood between the beds holding Ju-Julias and Mikie-Mike’s hand, he kissed them both and they said good-bye to this place called Teddy-Land .
The “ Sandman” then took over, as they closed their heavy eyes, and they rode home on fluffy clouds with most contented sighs.
Home Again, Home Again
Ju-Julia was first to wake to stretch, yawn and look around, and saw Mikie-Mike beside her still sleeping softly on the ground.
“Wake up, wake up Mikie-Mike my friend where back from Teddy-Land Bo Bo says it’s time for tea, now do you understand.”
Mikie –Mike sat up and thought of all that he had seen, he knew what he had saw that day could not have been a dream.
“Ju-Julia I’m sorry, for the times that I’ve been bad to you, I wish I could take back the nasty names I once called you, Ju-Julia it’s true.”
Ju-Julia just smiled at him and pointed to a chair, and poured a pretend cup of tea in the cup and saucer sitting there.
Mikie-Mike sat at the tiny table and there on the very next chair, sat his fuzzy little new friend, the one called Bo Bo Bear.
“So Ju-Julia please tell me when can we take again your Bo Bo’s hand, Ju-Julia I can hardly wait, to revisit Teddy-Land.”
Ju-Julia lifted Bo Bo Bear and hugged him lovingly then gave a hug to Mike-Mike who blushed surprisingly.
“Oh Mikie-Mike we’ll go again real soon, to Bo Bo’s Teddy-Land, but till then we can laugh and play with all my stuffed toy friends.”
