T'was the day before easter & all trough the woods...
the bunnies were busy packing thier goods.
the eggs were all coloured so pretty & bright
all things were 'GO'for the big special night.

The basket's were waiting all decorated with care
in hopes that thev bunnies soon would be there
My little brother THOEPHILUS was asleep in his bed
while vision of easter rolled round his head
And in my pynjamas & with the puppy on my lap
i had just settled down for a quick little nap
When outside the window i heard a great niose
i sprang from my chair & jumped over some toys

As quick as a flash to the window i flew
i pulled up the shade & 'OH! what a view
The moon on the meadow cast a great golden glow
& the wind blew the flowers to & fro 

all of a sudden from out of no where 
came some lovely bunnies hopping here & there
Leading the pack with eyes long & funny 
was an all plump white-rabbit
that's right the EASTER BUNNY!

So up on each doorstep the bunnies did hop
with basket of eggs{LET'S HOPE THEY DON'T DROP}
Just at that moment from the porch down below
came the stamping of feet t'was the rabbit i know

He was surronded by eggs, which had been carefully dyed
Easter eggs galore he soon would hide
he's eyes were all twinkles,he's nose so pink
And i can't be so sure{but i think he did wink}

He uttered no sound as he hopped all about
hidding the eggs & leaving no doubt,
That the easter bunny had come with,
basket's of eggs for children so dear.
