Happy Easter!


There's a story quite funny,
About a toy bunny,
And the wonderful things she can do;
Every bright Easter morning,
Without warning,
She colors eggs, red, green, or blue.

Some she covers with spots,
Some with quaint little dots,
And some with strange mixed colors, too
-- Red and green, blue and yellow,
But each unlike his fellow
Are eggs of every hue.

And it's odd, as folks say,
That on no other day
In all of the whole year through,
Does this wonderful bunny,
So busy and funny,
Color eggs of every hue.

If this story you doubt
She will soon find you out,
And what do you think she will do?
On the next Easter morning
She'll bring you without warning,
Those eggs of every hue.

The Easter Bunny by
M. Josephine Todd (1909)
This bunny jumped back to the countryside
See you next week!

Lovely. Until I got to the end I thought you had written it, and was going to compliment you on your English (except for the American spelling of 'colour', but none of us are perfect [except me, of course]).

Have a lovely break.

They would make very nice picasso-omelettes.

Dave, if you were perfect, you'd have written "none of us is perfect". Sorry, I try to keep my pedantry in check, but I couldn't resist that one.

Happy Easter Taiga and all the foxes!

Happy Easter to you and yours, Taiga.

I'm elsewhere at the moment as well. My Mum's 60th birthday is next Friday, so I'm back in my home town of Stafford - a grey place commendable only for its excellent travel links to everywhere else. It makes a change, though.

Pat: I do know that. It was intended to be ironic.

Sometimes I'm too subtle for my own good.

Just time to look round from the piano and wish you a truly vulpine Happy Easter!

patroclus said...

As you were, Dave - dictionary.com says either is correct.

Dave said...

I expect you meant to say either are correct.

Don't you go correcting my irony, young lady.

Thanks!
This bunny found out that some evil bunny has eaten all my Forsythias. Otherwise I had a very relaxing holiday and the cubs were happy eating their chocolate eggs.

I hope you all had a lovely and perfect Easter too!
