Chatting With A Rabbit

Updated on March 25, 2016

The Beautiful Land of Dreams

The other night I had a dream:

While walking home from school,

I met a bunny with a basket...

That was pretty cool,

But even better was the way

He stopped and spoke to me.

(That's when I knew it was a dream,

For they can't talk, you see.)

So anyway, he tipped his hat

(Shaped oddly like an egg)

And said, "I've got to take a break.

This hopping hurts my leg."

I must have looked astonished as

He sat upon the ground

And yawned, set down his basket, and

Began to look around.

"A lovely day for rabbits, don't you think?" I was in shock.

(I don't meet many talking rabbits hopping down my block.)

Just then I wakened from the dream and realized just that:

It was a dream. There was no bunny with an egg-shaped hat.


The Moral of the Story?

I walked outside and stretched a bit,

When hopping up the street

Appeared a bunny with a basket,

Egg-shaped hat, and chocolate feet.

      Patricia,

      I did LOVE this poem. I need to start digging into (that) area that we humans all have where ideas are born.

      Talk to you later.

      Hi, Patricia,

      It was nice to see you again on my "Old Bench" poem and I am so very glad that I made the trip to your page.

      Delightful poem. And besides, I LOVE rabbits.

      Loved this to a fault.

      Keep up the great work and keep

      in touch with me. Seriously.
