Hershey isn’t stored in Mum’s Garage but Catherine still has the childhood poem that she wrote about the bear…

Poem Catherine Gantt, written before age 10
Art by Katy Somerville


Hershey is my teddy bear

He has lots of hair

Two brown eyes

A button nose

And a couple of stitches for his toes

About the Artist

Katy Somerville was beamed into existence on a Monday night in the mid-eighties by stars, glitter, and a glorious Italian woman from a long line of very strong women. In the present timeline, she likes to drink coffee, pat any animal that will engage with her, make collages, and spend time laughing and finding moments of joy wherever she can with her partner and her goofy, lanky dog.
