Two thousand pounds, a solid ton,

He had no fear,

Of anyone.


A beautiful beast, silver tipped brown.

He lived in the mountains,

Around nature’s sound.


High in the escarpment, he lived alone.

For to no other,

He belonged.


Thru his nostrils, an odor seeped the land.

What’s this smell?

The coming of man.


He had no fear, he didn’t run.

He’d never encountered,

The deadly gun.


Thunder rolled, tho the sky was clear.

The mighty bear stood,

He had no fear.


The storm again broke. The stillness hushed.


The silver tipped brown,

Fell in a heavy crush.


A callous heart, reigned over the bear,

The beautiful coat,

The man had to wear.
