~Twas The Day Before Easter~
Twas the day before Easter and all through the
woods, The bunnies were busy packing their goods.
The eggs were all colored so pretty and bright,
All things were "go" for the big , special night.
The baskets were waiting, all decorated with
care, In hopes that the Bunny soon would be
My little brother Sam was asleep in his bed,
While visions of Easter eggs rolled round his
And I in my pajamas with the cat on my lap, I had
just settled down for a quick little nap.
When outside the window I heard a great noise, I
sprang from my chair and jumped over some toys.
As quick as a flash to the window I flew, I
pulled up the shade and , OH, what a view.
The moon on the meadow cast a bright golden glow
And the wind blew the flowers to and then fro.
Then all of a sudden from out of nowhere, Came
some lively bunnies, hopping here, hopping there!
Leading the group with ears long and funny Was a
plump , all-white rabbit... That's right.. the
The bunnies hopped past, one, two , three, four,
The rabbit called out and then there were more.
"Come, Peter!, Come,Flopsy!, Come, Benny!, Come,
Joe! Now hop along! Hop along! Hop along! GO!"
So up on each doorstep the bunnies did hop, With
baskets of eggs. (Let's hope they don't drop)!
Just at that moment, on the porch down below,

As I stepped from my window I heard a loud sound.
Through the door came the rabbit with a leap and
He was furry and soft from his head to his feet.
To see him so close was really quite neat.
He was surrounded by eggs that had been carefully
dyed. Easter eggs galore he soon would hide.
His eyes were all twinkles, His nose was so pink,
And I can't be too sure but I think he did wink.
He had a kind face and a big fluffy tail That
bobbed up and down like a boat with a sail.
A twitch of his nose and a flick of his ear Was
his way of saying "You've nothing to fear."
He uttered no sound as he hopped all about,,
Hiding the eggs and leaving no doubt.,
That the Easter bunny had come like he does every
Bringing baskets of happiness to children so
