Precious In Hope-a poem

CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Life and Faith for the Years of Winter

This is finally every life:
an old teddy bear, stuffed
with rags and memories
one eye missing, fur worn
off in the hugging
of the years, destined
for the heap of trash
in the back yard
but precious in its hope


If you think this is bad poetry, you are correct, but my explanation/excuse is that I do not think of it as poetry at all, just my first-of-the-morning musings set down in sort-of poem-like form.
