Meeting the Easter Bunny

No comment 26 views


On Easter morn at early dawn;
before the cocks were crowing,
I met a bob-tail bunnykin
and asked where he was going.

“Tis in the house and out the house;

a-tispy, tipsy-toeing,

Tis round the house and ’bout the house

a-lightly I am going.”

“But what is that of every hue;

you carry in your basket?”

“Tis eggs of gold and eggs of blue;

I wonder that you ask it.

“Tis chocolate eggs and bonbon eggs;

and eggs of red and gray,

For every child in every house

on bonny Easter day.”

He perked his ears and winked his eye;

and twitched his little nose.

He shook his tail, what tail he had,

and stood up on his toes.

“I must be gone before the sun;

the east is growing gray,

Tis almost time for bells to chime,

So he hippety-hopped away.
