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.
