Easter Poem for Children

Meeting the Easter Bunny
On Easter morn at early dawn before the roosters 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 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.
~Rowena Bennett
