In front of Jackson's candy shop
Looking into its window
Designs of Easter eggs, rabbits
Wrapped in bright foiled colors
Ah purple, green, yellow, pink
And all in such abundance.

Mouth so waters at the scene
Eyes glisten at its wonder.
One large so rabbit
Dressed in foil of pink and white
And on its head a purple flower
Its size almost reached the sky.

Hollow chocolate eggs
With springtime scenes its view
Easter baskets filled with goodies
One better that the other
But none as pretty as the rabbit.

If only I would get
This rabbit the biggest one of all 
None other!

Easter morning I awoke
And to my big surprise
There stood the treasure of my eyes
It seemed to wink and smile
I kissed the foil of pink and white
My heart felt warm and fluttered
Dare I remove the cover, such beauty?
And taste its delicacy

Carefully I so opened
Its pink and white attire
Closed my eyes, took a bite
Its taste was sweet divine
Oh my it lost its feet
And inside, sad to say
The rabbit it was HOLLOW!
