lost in the garden

Once upon a time there were four bears called Mummy Bear, Daddy Bear, George and Georgina. They lived in a very small house with a very large garden.

Every morning after breakfast George and Georgina went out into the garden to play.
One day they didn't come home for lunch.

Mummy and Daddy Bear were very worried. They went into the garden to look for their children.
In the front garden they met a bird called a Guinea Fowl. Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked.
I did see the Teddy Bears early today
They stayed and they played
Then they went on their way.
On the wall of the house they saw some flying ducks. Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked one.

They stayed and they played
Then they went on their way.
In the back garden they met a man playing a clarinet. Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked. But the man just kept playing his clarinet and didn't answer.
Further down the path they met a dog called Potter. Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked. But Potter was watching a Monarch butterfly and didn't hear them.
Next they met some rabbits with blue eyes. Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked. 

We did see the Teddy Bears early today
They stayed and they played
Then they went on their way.
By this time it was starting to get dark, and Mummy and Daddy Bear were more worried than ever.
Right at the end of the garden near the compost heaps they met a kind and wise gnome.  Have you seen George and Georgina? they asked.  The gnome didn't answer. He just pointed to the tall Willow Myrtle tree at the bottom of the garden.
Behind the tree they found the two little bears, lost and hungry and thirsty.
So they all went home together and had some delicious food before they went to bed.
 Goodnight, little bears ...
