Brightly colored, named and set aside,
For Easter bunny pranks and searching fun,
Each year the giggling chorus starts outside,
Cacophony of happiness, boys undone.
I spy with my sharp eye an aqua orb,
Nestled on a tree trunk, perched just so,
I’ll leave the lower reaches for the tots,
But higher up I’m able and I’ll go.
I’ll gather all my treasures, toys and sweets
And sometimes I’ll discover coins to boot,
But filling up my basket is the goal,
This springtime free-for-all is now afoot.
This silly rhyme is nearly at an end,
The squirrels are on the ready for the game,
I dally not a moment or they’ll win
the battle, for the Easter Eggs – again!
