Meeting the Easter Bunny

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-tipsy, 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 why 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.

DEAR PAULA,
THAT IS THE SWEETEST POEM. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A COPY OF IT. I WOULD MAKE A LITTLE BOOK TO PUT IT IN SO IF SOME DAY I BECOME A GRANDMA, I COULD READ IT TO MY GRANDCHILDREN.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL EASTER.

Hey, Paula, my daffodils are on a couple posts back on my blog for you!
How many episodes have I missed of Harlan County or whatever it was called. I keep forgetting to look for it. What do you think about it. Remind me when it's on, please.
Have a great week, Kim xx
