Happy Rabbits In Our Garden

( INTERLOCKING RUBAIYAT ) When I look out of the window, All at once, my heart feels a glow! Happy Rabbits in our garden Play. Then, relax in the shadow. Like rocks, their silhouettes harden. Though out in the open garden, In search, their predators miss them. Relieved. The Rabbits lives pardoned. As the coast clears, their youngsters then Spring out from their safe little den. One by one, they pop out the ground! This family numbers to ten. In panic, they run around. Because they can now hear the sound Of something strange heading their way... Once gone, it can never be found! It's the seasonal hunters day. And he has his own game to play. The more hits, the higher his score, All Rabbits, be they brown or grey! These little creatures I adore. I feel so much joy to see more Happy Rabbits in our garden! What did that hunter come here for?

Such a sweet and fun poem! Peter Rabbit would have done better visiting your garden than Old Mr. McGregor's! I see them in the desert around where I live, they are so adorable!

They are cute little guys, aren't they? Sadly big birds can be their enemies too. We used to call them cottontails, like the story. The babies are so so tiny. Your words in your poem hoppity hip across the poem as I read. It's a happy, sweet poem

The babies are just adorable.. I love the movie about Beatrix Potter and seeing how life and nature inspired her animal friends for her stories. Such an inspiration and creative person. :-D

Enjoyed your poem, Natasha. This is an interesting form - often with sombre themes. You have taken the challenge very well! I love rabbits too - they visit my garden. Love and best wishes ~ Mala

Thank you Mala. I saw a Rabbit hunched cosy in the shade in our garden. Then I thought of this contest and felt that it would be a good topic for the poem. The Rabbits are very cute! They're like pets, without the responsibility. Glad you enjoyed. Warm wishes :-D
