Easter Bunny Poem


A Bribe for Bunny
By Marjorie Dillon

I made a nest my very best,
To hold my eggs from Bunny;

I wish he’d hop right in and stop—
Oh, wouldn’t that be funny?

Some lettuce fine on which to dine
I left, in hopes he’ll grab It:

What fun ‘twould be, if I could see
That busy Easter rabbit!
