A Polar Bear in the Hotpress

FYI: When we say “hotpress” in Ireland we are referring to what other peoples call airing cupboards, linen cupboard or plain old fashioned heated cupboards.


A Polar Bear in our Hotpress

Somewhere under all the mess
Is a Polar Bear in our Hotpress.
All day.
Getting warmer.
Later at night as I switch
Off her light she says ‘Dad! Get Poley!’
He’s her sweet dream maker
And he can lift and take her
To where worries melt away.
So hold him tight little girl
As you fly into this cold world.
