In “Doggo” by Esa Ringbom, a brown bear picked an unsuccessful hiding place. It is a picture of a big brown bear hiding behind a very thin tree trunk.



Don’t move

Don’t make a noise

I am not afraid nor have lost my mind

It’s the tree that I am hiding

Not me

From the Loch Ness monster

That’s going to rise

From waters deep

Near my feet
