Easter Limericks

Updated on April 23, 2016

This year the hunt was a destination

a mini Easter Bunny vacation

our eager children

all refused to sleep in

for chocolate they were ready to run.


The day of over flowing basket

chocolate bunny to sugar bisquit

a time of candy joy

with a spring colored toy

in our living room we smile and sit.


This indulgence is our prayer

renewal of concerns and care

right behind the Peeps

and the plastic toy Jeeps

baskets of family love to share.


The Bunny arrived in a copter

and next year it will be on a chopper

back to ready! Set! Go!

The kids already know

there a is a man behind all of the fur.


Of course this happens after Mass

the kids are quiet, there is no sass

and to quote my daughter

this holiday's got her

slightly behind her love of Christmas.
