I have a certain fascination with bears left at the graveside of those who died young. I find them quite moving and am always intrigued by the way nature reclaims them. In one of my two local churchyards, I recently came across two examples on the grave of a 12-day-old. I didn't notice at the time, but the second bear is holding another in its arms - how sad!
