Gentle, gentle lovely creatures
Dwelling softly on the earth,
Fleet of foot, ever watchful,
Stillness being of much worth,
Bunny’s breath, bunny’s whiskers
Bunny’s soft paws on my arm
Bunny’s bright eyes gazing at me -
Liquid fire, yet soft and warm.
Bunnies flashing by like silver,
Bunnies sitting in the sun,
Bunnies playing with each other,
Bunnies leaping, just for fun.
Bunny’s tail-white cotton fluff,
Inky black, his velvet nose
Bunnies playing all around me,
Bunnies chewing up my clothes!
Bunnies ever in my mind
Make my spirit soar above,
Bunnies always in my heart
Gently teaching me to love.
