Ode to a Bunny

Oh little bunny, so fair
You’d best go back into your lair
Mr McGregor, we don’t have
Instead, we’ve Mr Lar

A nice guy, our Mr Lar,
A sunny disposition he does bear
But tiny nibbles on his beans
Brings out Mr Mean

Mr McGregor chased with hoe,
Peter Rabbit, through the rows
Mr Lar, not fond of chasing, a little more direct
It’s target practice, he’ll elect

You are cute and cuddly
It’s true – we can’t deny it
But get in Larry’s garden again
And you are going to buy it

    CM says to himself, “Oh my! …. she even writes poetry … where do her talents end?!?”


    …. and the memories of the Grandmother that we share …. only makes the poem more meaningful … she would have loved it!

    Oh what a cute little bunny!! But I think cute little bunnies are eating my tomatoes!!! ACK!

    CM – I think most people would agree that my talent for poetry ended at about the time I started this post earlier today.

    It’s life out in the country folks – you do know what they say about rabbits, right? The coyotes take care of most of them actually. ;)

    I’m even feeling a little afraid at this point . . .
