A Little Treasure I Found

I found this stuffed toy at a gift shop at a rest stop in Western Massachusetts. My husband noticed the shop looked like it had nice things and we looked around. I saw a small display of stuffed toys, and also realized I’d not selected one for myself before. She is a baby black bear I named Amelia, her fur is so soft and glossy, she calms me, and she reminded me of my poem, “The Reddest Leaves” which featured a baby bear cub. She’s beside a book called ‘great short stories of the world.’
